Apr 4, 2017-

Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews will miss the remaining fixtures of Bangladesh’s tour after being ruled out of the Twenty20 matches starting in Colombo on Tuesday. Mathews—who returned home in January halfway through the tour of South Africa after twisting his ankle—also missed Sri Lanka’s Test and ODI matches against the visitors. Sri Lanka’s cricket board said on Monday that Upul Tharanga would captain the side during the two-match T20 series this week, without revealing why Mathews was sidelined.
