Sri Lanka’s leg-spinning all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga will miss the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 due to an injury on his left heel.  

Hasaranga was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for his base price of INR 1.5 crore after being released by Royal Challengers Bengaluru, who had purchased him for INR 10.75 crore in 2022. 

“He is not taking part in the IPL as he needs to do some rehabilitation after meeting the podiatrist,” SLC CEO Ashley de Silva told the Sunday Times.

As reported by the Sunday Times, Hasaranga is expected to travel to Dubai to get expert advice from a podiatrist to manage his troubled heel.  

“There’s a swelling in the heel, and he has been playing with injections. So, he has decided to get this issue sorted out before the World Cup and informed us of his decision to skip the IPL this year,” de Silva further added.
