Shifting the focus to cricket, it’s worth noting that Hasaranga won’t be participating in the upcoming Asia Cup due to an injury. Hasaranga recently led his team to victory in the 2023 edition of the Lanka Premier League. He finished the competition as both the highest wicket-taker and run-scorer, winning the player of the tournament. Hasaranga guided B-Love Kandy to their maiden LPL title win against Dambulla Aura. 

Hasaranga was absent from the LPL final due to a thigh strain. His management has indicated that his recovery progress makes it improbable for him to be ready for Sri Lanka’s upcoming matches against Bangladesh and Afghanistan in the Asia Cup group stage. Should Sri Lanka progress beyond the group stage, Hasaranga’s participation will hinge on his ability to play without jeopardizing his recovery.

The Cricket World Cup 2023 is scheduled to be held in India later this year.
