Who is Wanindu Hasaranga? Sri Lanka’s star of BAN vs SL 1st ODI


Wanindu Hasaranga: Sri Lanka are currently on a short tour to Bangladesh where they are involved in a 3-match ODI series against the hosts. The Island nation didn’t make the best of the start in the series after losing the 1st ODI by 33 runs. Considering the recent run of poor results, and the negativity surrounding Sri Lankan cricket for all sorts of reasons, the result in the 1st ODI match was hardly surprising. However, there were some positives to take for the team from the 1st ODI, especially the performance of Wanindu Hasaranga.

This was not a once in a blue moon kind of inning as Hasaranga has already shown enough signs that he is a far better batsman than the position he is being assigned to bat these days.
