Lankan all rounder Mathews to miss Asia Cup

   Mar 15, 12:23 pm

Dhaka, Mar 15(ANI): Sri Lankan all rounder Angelo Mathews has been ruled out of the Asia Cup with a calf injury and returned home on Wednesday.

The news has come as a significant blow to Sri Lanka's hope of winning the sub continental trophy.

Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene said Mathews had returned home to Colombo to get fit in time for the two-Test series against England starting on March 26.

"Angelo has not pulled through fitness tests well. So we made a call to send him back home. He will try to get ready for the Test matches. The selectors back home will decide and send a replacement for us," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Jayawardene, as saying.

Mathews, a right-arm fast bowler and hard-hitting batsman lower down the order, had also missed the Tri Series finals in Australia earlier this month due to the same problem. (ANI)
