Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batter Kusal Mendis was taken to hospital after suffering cramps during his innings against Pakistan in the ICC ODI World Cup match played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
“Kusal Mendis was taken to the hospital after the player suffered cramps upon returning from the field after his brilliant knock in the ongoing game vs Pakistan,” the Sri Lanka Cricket board said in a statement.
Mendis, who scored the fastest century for Sri Lanka in World Cup history, couldn’t take the field in second innings. The board said that Dushan Hemantha has replaced him on the field while Sadeera Samarawickrama will be donning the wicketkeeping gloves.
On the back of Mendis and Samarawickrama’s centuries, Sri Lanka scored 344 runs against Pakistan in the first innings.
