Sri Lanka Cricket has unveiled its 15-member squad for the upcoming Men’s ODI Asia Cup 2023, following approval from Roshan Ranasinghe, the Minister of Sports and Youth. However, the team has been hit by a series of injuries, leading to a reshuffling of the original lineup.

Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Dilshan Madushanka, and Lahiru Kumara, who were initially selected for the tournament, have been ruled out due to injuries. In their place, Binura Fernando and Pramod Madushan have been proposed as late replacements. Their inclusion is pending approval from the Ministry of Sports and Youth.

Kusal Janith Perera, another key player, is currently recovering from flu. He is expected to join the squad once he has fully recuperated.

The finalized 15-man squad for the Asia Cup 2023 includes Dasun Shanaka, Pathum Nissanaka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Janith Perera, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage, Matheesha Pathirana, Kasun Rajitha, Dushan Hemantha, Binura Fernando, and Pramod Madushan.
