Mahela Jayawardene pulls out of NatWest T20 Blast

Mahela Jayawardene has withdrawn from his stint at Lancashire.

The former Sri Lankan captain has pulled out from his planned spell with Lancashire during the NatWest T20 Blast campaign due to personal reasons.

Mahela was expected to join the squad later this month ahead of their opening game against Durham on July 7.

Glen Chapple, Lancashire's head coach said,





It's disappointing that Mahela won't be joining us for the upcoming T20 campaign, we are currently reviewing and reassessing all options from a player perspective ahead of the NatWest T20 Blast campaign in light of this news.




He has previously played in the NatWest T20 Blast with Sussex and Somerset, and is currently head coach of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.

Jayawardene added,





I am very disappointed to be unable to join Lancashire Lightning in the upcoming NatWest T20 Blast as planned. I would like to wish the club a successful campaign this year.
