SL tend to Herath's wellness, Mathews recuperates

Sri Lanka commander Angelo Mathews has beat the Achilles worry that constrained him off the field ahead of schedule amid Scotland's innings on Thursday, group director Michael de Zoysa has said. In any case, Rangana Herath's accessibility for the quarter-last against South Africa on March 18 has not yet been affirmed.

Herath had the lines on his turning finger uprooted on Friday, however despite the fact that it had been trusted he would resume bowling in the nets on Saturday, he has not yet knocked down some pins in Sri Lanka's preparation sessions.


"We're simply issuing him an additional day to recuperate," de Zoysa said. "He'll begin rocking the bowling alley on Sunday I think."

Notwithstanding the minor setback, Herath is liable to be accessible for the quarter-last in Sydney. Taking after the Scotland match, bad habit skipper Lahiru Thirimanne had said he was "80% certain" Herath would have sufficiently recuperated for the following amusement. Herath had gotten the cut on his finger amid the penultimate over of Sri Lanka's match against England on March 1. He missed the two consequent diversions.

Mathews' Achilles grievances essentially obliged rest, de Zoysa said. Mathews did not go to the discretionary preparing session on Saturday either, however will start netting again on Sunday.

Both men are fundamental to the parity of Sri Lanka's XI. Mathews gives relentless medium pace to run with his batting and captaincy, while Herath has to a great extent been proficient at controlling the resistance run rate through the center overs.
