Sri Lanka Cricket: Injured Angelo Mathews Dropped From ODI & T20 Squads

Angelo Matthews

Sri Lanka have called up Sadeera Samarawickrama for the following T20 and ODI series against New Zealand after Angelo Mathews was sidelined due to an injury.

Mathews harmed his hamstring and was compelled to retire hurt amid Sri Lanka’s 2nd innings of the 423-run pounding in the second Test in Christchurch, which anchored a 1-0 series triumph for the Black Caps.

The first of three ODIs happens in Mount Maunganui on Thursday, before an irregular T20 in Auckland on January 11.

Mathews made a match-sparing 120 not out in the primary Test in Wellington and commended his century by performing push-ups out on the pitch – apparently because of the individuals who have condemned his fitness levels previously.

Those apparent issues saw him dropped from the ongoing ODI series against England, a choice which incited Mathews to request a fitness test to demonstrate he was up to the mark.

Notwithstanding, this most recent damage blow implies he will miss the white-ball series with New Zealand, while he is an uncertainty to include in the two-Test series against Australia, beginning in the not so distant future.
