In 48 ODIs, the 26-year-old has taken 67 wickets at an average of 28.77 for Sri Lanka.

A pectoral injury has also ruled out Dushmantha Chameera.

On October 7, Sri Lanka will play South Africa in the 50-over World Cup in India. In the event that a squad member is injured during the tournament, Hasaranga will be considered as a replacement if his recovery is monitored.

Sri Lanka, coached by former England coach Chris Silverwood, will be led by all-rounder Dasun Shanaka.

As Sri Lanka reached the final of the Asia Cup this month, they were bowled out for 50 by India in a 10-wicket loss.
