“The SLC was criticized in the media for sending him to England but the members of the touring squad speak highly about him,” the source from England said.

“The work by the new physio (Brett Harrop) has also been appreciated by the team members.”

Interestingly, Harrop’s wife, Gwen is also a physiotherapist in New Zealand.

Harrop was scheduled to treat Ishan Jayaratne on Wednesday. The 32-year-old all-rounder has some minor issues with knee. It may not be a very serious injury to the right-arm fast bowler but he was to be rested for the 50-over practice game on Wednesday.

“The players will play both the practice matches seriously. English umpires (Lancashire) are officiating in these matches. We are to play the second practice match (it will be a 20-20 over match on Friday,” the source added.
