Kusal Mendis cleared of complications


Sri Lanka heaved a sigh of relief after their batter Kusal Mendis was cleared of any major complications following an ECG on Monday (23 May).

Mendis was taken to a hospital for proper diagnosis and better management after complaining of chest pain during the opening session (in 23rd over) of the second Test against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

“He underwent an ECG and there was no major issue in the report,” said a Bangladesh Cricket Board official. “Hopefully he will report back to the hotel within a couple of hours as he is now under observation,” he added.

Mendis made 54 and 48 runs respectively in the opening drawn Test in Chattogram.
