Why is Hasaranga not playing?

Faf said at the toss that the Sri Lankan leg spinner has had a niggle and hence is not playing the match. In his absence, in the last match, Kiwi all rounder Bracewell bowled exceedingly well.

What did the captains say at the toss?

Aiden Markram:

We would have looked to bat. Not too disappointed. Couple of changes. Brook comes in. Tyagi comes in as well. Umran is an x-factor player. Lot of pride to play for. We haven’t lived up to the ability. We should try to showcase that at the world stage in the last two games.

Faf du Plessis:

We are gonna have a bowl. The last two nights we have had some dew. Good surface but touch on the slower side. Same team as last game. Hasaranga has a niggle. Bracewell strengthens our batting. We have to start afresh. The game of cricket has a funny way of biting you. You have to have the humility of looking at a fresh game.
