Sri Lanka’s batsman Avishka Fernando has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match ODI series against England due to a grade two tear to his quadriceps. The Sri Lankan batsman had picked up the injury while fielding in the second T20I of the three-match series against England, and because of which he didn’t play in the third and final T20I.

This injury comes as a major problem for Avishka Fernando as the tour of England was his first with the national team since the COVID-19 pandemic. The 23-year-old young Sri Lankan batsman had earlier missed the tours of the West Indies and Bangladesh.

“Avishka Fernando has sustained an injury to his right quadriceps (Grade 2 Tear). Fernando suffered this injury while fielding during the 2nd T20I played against England at Cardiff,” tweeted the official handle of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

 

The Sri Lanka team who are on tour to England has been clean sweep by the English side as they lose the three-match T20I series against England. The visitors failed to win a single match, and as a result, England won the series by 3-0.

England and Sri Lanka will now face up in the three-match ODI series, starting Tuesday at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street.
