COLOMBO: Given Sri Lanka’s injury woes - particularly to their fast bowlers - Head Coach Chandika Hathurusingha has been putting in place a system that will help the team reduce injuries.

During Sri Lanka’s eight-day residential training camp in Kandy ahead of the tour of West Indies, Cricket Victoria’s High-Performance Manager Tim McCaskil worked with the bowlers and Hathurusingha is confident that the inputs will help his side in the long run.

“I wanted to get Tim’s expertise. He is more of a fast bowling bio-mechanics expert. He took a look at our bowlers’ mechanics. He went through all the bowlers. He had studied footage before he had come and he was prepared,” Hathurusingha told Cricbuzz after the residential training camp.

Fast bowlers Shehan Madushanka and Nuwan Pradeep have been ruled out of the tour of West Indies with hamstring injuries while Suranga Lakmal is returning after a side strain. Angelo Mathews, who will make a comeback in West Indies after a five month lay-off due to hamstring and calf injuries, will only play as a specialist batsman.

“We went through what our bowlers need to do. What stage they are at. Whether they need to change anything. Or if we can not change, what are the areas that we need to strengthen. We have to modify their training or do strength and conditioning. That was very successful. When we get back to Colombo, Tim is going to sit with our medical staff and discuss how to go about things,” Hathurusingha explained.
