England Cricket – English Wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow Injured
Jonny Bairstow could miss England’s fourth ODI against Sri Lanka in the wake of bending his lower leg playing football in a training session.
The 29-year-old Yorkshire batsman has not yet been sent for a proper medical scan, but rather will be surveyed by England’s therapeutic staff.

At present, England are 2-0 up in the 5-match match and have a prepared substitution in Alex Hales should Bairstow not be passed fit.
England’s players frequently play a short round of football in preparing and in their pre-coordinate warm-ups.
The players appreciate the sessions and have granted each other dream football esteems on their current visit.

In any case, talking not long ago, 32-year-old Kent batsman Joe Denly offered another indication of the dangers included.
He endured knee damage in a test from colleague Owais Shah in 2009 and football was prohibited for a period by then-England mentor Andy Flower.
