Captain Mathews to miss remainder of South African seriesJanuary 23, 2017, 10:29 pm
Struggling Sri Lanka will be without their skipper Angelo Mathews for the remainder of the bilateral series against South Africa. Mathews hit two sixes in the last over to hand Sri Lanka a series-levelling three-wicket win in the second T20 International in Johannesburg on Sunday.
It was Sri Lanka’s first win of the tour, but it came at a huge cost. Mathews twisted his right ankle when he dived to avoid being run out in the 19th over of the innings.
"It’s pretty bad, I think I will be out for a couple of weeks," Mathews said after guiding Sri Lanka to a tensed win with two balls to spare. Mathews was named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 54.
Vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal will step in as captain for the final T-20 International in Cape Town and will do the job during the ODIs as well.Read More...
