As a direct consequence of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) refusing to issue Wanindu Hasaranga a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) to participate in the Hundred, Hasaranga has been compelled to back out of his deal with Manchester Originals, which was worth a total of £100,000.
His request was denied by the board of directors of the SLC, according to Ashley de Silva, the chief executive officer of the SLC, who told ESPNcricinfo that they want him to be physically and mentally fresh before the Asia Cup, which begins on August 27, and the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia later this year.
Before the Lanka Premier League was postponed, Originals had anticipated that Hasaranga would not be able to participate in the Hundred due to a scheduling conflict with the competition. If they are able to reach an agreement with him over a contract, they will have the option of keeping him on their roster for the 2023 season.
It has been brought to the attention of ESPNcricinfo that Tristan Stubbs, a middle-order batter who scored 72 runs off 28 balls in the first Twenty20 International that South Africa played against England the previous week, has been signed as a replacement and will join Originals after South Africa’s game against Ireland on Friday.
Originals will likely fill their three abroad positions with Andre Russell, Ashton Turner, and Sean Abbott when they play their first game of the 2022 season on Friday night at Emirates Old Trafford against Northern Superchargers. The game will be played against Northern Superchargers. When Stubbs becomes available, it is anticipated that Turner would drop out of the XI. However, it is anticipated that Turner will return to the side when Russell departs for the CPL, which begins on September 1.
In other news, Welsh Fire announced on Thursday that Naseem Shah will not be participating in the competition because he has been selected to represent Pakistan in both the Asia Cup and the tour of the Netherlands. Naseem did not participate in the game that Fire played on the opening night when they lost to Southern Brave, and he will not be joining the squad. They have not yet disclosed who will take over in this role.
As injured replacements for Tom Abell and Olly Stone, respectively, Birmingham Phoenix have acquired Brett D’Oliveira, an all-rounder from Worcestershire, and Timm van der Gugten, a seamer from Glamorgan. The general manager of the Phoenix organisation, Craig Flindall, expressed his excitement at the addition of two veteran players to the team’s roster.
