Sri Lanka's national cricket team travelling to England early next week will have a new physio, multiple sources at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) confirmed.

According to sources, SLC has hired former Victoria fast bowler Brett Harrop, who later became physio. 

Harrop's only first-class match was against the visiting Indian team in 2003. He later pursued a career in physiotherapy. 

The 41-year-old Harrop has extensive experience working with the international cricketers in India, Bangladesh, New Zealand and Pakistan. 

SLC has hired him for two years, it is understood. 

Ajantha Wattegama, who recently went to Bangladesh may be assigned to work with the High-Performance Centre.  

Harrop, who was last attached with the Otago team in New Zealand, came to Sri Lanka in the last week of May. 

At present he is in a 14-day quarantine in Negombo and will be joining the team hotel bio-bubble later this week.  

Along with Harrop, there were a few other candidates interviewed by Aravinda de Silva (Cricket Committee chairman), Ashely De Silva (the CEO) and Prof. Arjuna de Silva (the Chairman of the SLC Medical Panel).
