Mahela joins SL team earlier than expected

Sri Lanka team consultant Mahela Jayawardena was set to join the Sri Lanka team yesterday (10) in Abu Dhabi.

Although he was working as the Mumbai Indians head coach, Mahela joined the Sri Lankan team earlier than expected after the winning IPL franchise failed to secure a play-off spot.

According to reports, Mahela was to enter the bubble of the Sri Lankan team after exiting the IPL bio bubble.

Earlier, SLC had announced that Mahela Jayawardena will be with the Sri Lanka team for a 7-day period from Oct. 16th - Oct. 23rd.
