T20 World Cup: Wanindu Hasaranga shortlisted for Player of Tournament award.

Sri Lanka’s ace spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has been included in the 9-member shortlist for the Player of the Tournament for the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.

Hasaranga’s wickets came at a stunning average of 13.26 and a tidy economy of 6.41, with best figures of 3/8. Hasaranga has a brilliant chance of now ending up as the leading wicket-taker in back-to-back editions of the tournament, after his 16 wickets in the 2021 edition in UAE and Oman.
