Experienced Angelo Mathews is likely to get the greenlight from the World Cup Technical Committee to be added to the Sri Lanka cricket squad in place of Matheesha Pathirana yesterday said an official of the Sri Lanka team during the Team training session held at MA Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore yesterday.

“We have two options to make a replacement for Matheesha Pathirana who has a shoulder injury and we have decided to add Mathews as the replacement and forwarded his name to the Technical Committee yesterday,” he said.

“Dushmantha Chameera was brought in as a travel reserve after his recovery period. But we think the better option is to add Mathews to strengthen our batting,” he said.

Maheesh Theekshana is fit for the next game and medical reports confirmed it and Sri Lanka team management will name the final eleven after the training session which is to be held today at the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium.

Mahela Jayawardena who is in charge of Sri Lanka Cricket development and National Selection Committee Chairman Promodya Wickrmasinghe and team head coach Chris Silverwood were present at the training yesterday evening at which both Angelo Mathews and Chameera took part.

Modern Drainage system at Chinnaswamy Stadium

Sri Lanka team were involved at the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium where a new drainage system was installed in 2017. Brijesh Patel the former Indian cricketer who played 21 Tests and 10 ODIs for India from 1974 to 1979, and a Patron of this Chinnaswamy Stadium said, “We introduced a very systematic drainage system here worth 7 Indian crores and also applied the system to Dharamsala Stadium. We discussed with Sri Lanka Cricket’s officials about this drainage system and also introduced a Solar system apart from Generators for electricity which is very effective. Sri Lanka cricket Team Manager Mahinda Halangoda had a chat with us.”

“We have a female International curator while she and her team give tremendous support to maintain the stadium. We normally cover only the centre wicket and the rest of the ground no need to cover, as the systematic drainage system makes it convenient,” said Brijesh Patel who is responsible for the modern technology.
