Corona’s shadow over the Asian Cup! Will the tournament be cancelled? 4 players became positive

There is not much time left before the 2023 Asian Cup begins. Meanwhile, news has come out that four players of the Sri Lankan team have been diagnosed with coronavirus. In addition to Pakistan, the matches of the upcoming tournament will also be played in Sri Lanka. The first game between Pakistan and Nepal will be played at Multan on August 30th. On the other hand, on August 31st, the Sri Lankan team will play their first match against Bangladesh at Pallekele Stadium.

The Sri Lankan team is currently preparing for the tournament. Meanwhile, four players from the Sri Lankan team, including fast bowlers Dushmanta Chameera and Wanindu Hasaranga, have been found infected, according to the report. In such a situation, it is now difficult for these players to play 5 days before the tournament starts.

The Sri Lankan team for the upcoming tournament has not yet been announced. In such a situation, it will not be an easy task for the national team to select the team. Lanka Premier League fast bowler Dushmanta Chameera is in danger of being ruled out of the tournament with a shoulder injury.

Defending champions Sri Lanka are this time in Group B of the Asian Cup, where they play alongside Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The team can only move into the Super 4 phase after a win. Wanindu Hasaranga, star spinner of the Sri Lanka team, was also injured during the Lanka Premier League, so it is almost certain that he will not play in the first two games. While the Sri Lankan team will play their first game in Pallekele, the second game will be played at the Lahore compound on September 5th.
