Written by N Krishnamurthy

Sri Lanka’s high profile Consultant Coach Mahela Jayawardene has retutned to Colombo in the middle of the ongoing World Cup citing personal reasons, Cricket Age reliably learns.

With three defeats in as many matches, Sri Lanka are languishing at the extreme bottom of the points table. Now, for Sri Lanka to qualify for the semi-finals, Kusal Mendis team has to win all remaining six matches.

“Yes, he is coming and going back on 23rd. “He is returning for a personal matter. He is spending on his own” a top SLC official told Cricket Age when Inquired.

In this scenario, it’s certain that Mahela will miss Sri Lanka’s next match against Nederlands. However, he will be joining the team before match against defending champion England on October 26 at Bengaluru.
