Probable Sri Lanka squad for Asia Cup 2023

The 16th edition of the Asia Cup is set to be jointly hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The event will feature 13 matches out of which 4 matches will be played in Pakistan while the remaining nine matches will be played in Sri Lanka.

The Inaugural match of the event will be played between Pakistan and Nepal at Multan Cricket Stadium. Sri Lanka is set to play their first match against Bangladesh on August 31 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

Players like Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Dilshan Madushanka, and Lahiru Kumara were sidelined from the tournament due to injury. Dushmantha Chameera is sidelined from a shoulder injury he sustained during the Lanka Premier League.

The absence of Kumara, Chameera, and Madushanka will be problematic in Sri Lanka’s bowling attack. Wanindu Hasaranga could be replaced by left-arm spinner Dunith Wellalage while Dushan Hemantha may also get a place in the squad.

India is most successful with seven trophies in the Asia Cup. Sri Lanka stands second with six titles and Pakistan won two titles in the continental event. Sri Lanka is the reigning champions defeating Pakistan in the 2022 finals.
