Hasaranga Played Through ‘Substantial Pain’ Before Test Unretirement Move, Sri Lanka Cricket Confirm

In August 2023, more than two years after his last Test match, Wanindu Hasaranga had announced his retirement from the format. A much sought-after cricketer in franchise leagues, his Test carer – four games, 196 runs at 28, four wickets at 101 – made ordinary reading. It did not seem an unusual move. However, Sri Lanka then included him for their two-match Test series in Bangladesh earlier this month (March 2024). This meant that Hasaranga had reverted his decision – not a common phenomenon in Test cricket.
