CPL 2022 Hasaranga Replacement

The replacement for Wanindu Hasaranga in the CPL 2022 has been announced by St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Rashid Khan will take over for Wanindu Hasaranga in St Kitts for the CPL 2022 season.

Hasaranga, a spin-bowling allrounder, has appeared in 38 T20Is for Sri Lanka, collecting 382 runs and taking 62 wickets. He was also impressed during the 2022 Indian Premier League.

The spin-bowling allrounder will not be available for selection because he will be representing Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 final. Earlier this week, spinner Wanindu Hasaranga led Sri Lanka’s bowling attack to a five-wicket victory over Pakistan in their dress rehearsal for the Asia Cup final on Friday. 

Both teams have already qualified for Sunday’s title match at the Twenty20 World Cup warm-up competition in October-November. Hasaranga bowled 3-21 with his leg spin to help Pakistan bowl out for 121 in 19.1 overs after they opted to bat first in Dubai.
