Mirpur: Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews has been ruled out for the rest of the ongoing Asia Cup. Mathews is suffering from a calf injury and will feature in the series. Mathews suffered the injury in the recently concluded Commonwealth Bank series and did not play in the finals because of the same injury.
Mathews has been an integral part of the Lankan side since the time he made his debut and will be missed dearly, even more now as Sri Lanka has lost their first match against India.
Mathews has played 71 one-days for Sri Lanka and has scored at an average of 32, on top of that he has 42 wickets to his name.
Mathews is not the only Sri Lankan player who is struggling because of the injury as their star fast-bowler Lasith Malinga is also carrying a niggle which kept him out against the Indians.
