Avishka Fernando

Opening batsman Avishka Fernando has been ruled out for two weeks after he sustained a hamstring injury during Sri Lanka’s five-wicket defeat to England in the second T20 international on Thursday.

Thus, the opener came back into the side having missed the last two tours in the West Indies and Bangladesh due to substandard fitness, will play no further part in the series.

Sri Lanka will also play three ODIs against England in addition to the three T20 international matches. Avishka, 23, made scores of 0, and 6 in the first two T20 matches in the current series.
