Sri Lankan pace sensation Matheesha Pathirana has now regained full fitness ahead of the highly anticipated T20I World Cup 2024, as confirmed by Sri Lanka Cricket Selection Committee Chairman Upul Tharanga.

Pathirana's journey to recovery commenced after an unfortunate hamstring injury sidelined him to exit the ongoing IPL 2024 season during a clash against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Subsequently, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team announced his departure from the squad, prompting his return to Sri Lanka.

His absence was keenly felt within the CSK bowling arsenal, underscoring his pivotal role within the team. Nevertheless, Sri Lanka had already earmarked him as a crucial asset for their T20 World Cup campaign, securing his inclusion in the squad.

Following a period of rehabilitation, the 21-year-old pace prodigy has now been deemed fully fit to participate in the upcoming T20 extravaganza, a development declared by Tharanga.

With Pathirana's return to full strength, Sri Lanka's preparations for the T20 World Cup have received a significant boost, culminating in heightened anticipation for their inaugural match scheduled for June 3rd.
