Kusal and Shehan out of third T20I
Kusal Mendis and Shehan Jayasuriya are unlikely to feature in Sri Lanka’s third T20I against New Zealand, since both suffered leg injuries while fielding in the second T20I game in Kandy on Tuesday, Sri Lanka Cricket said.
Team Manager Ashantha De Mel said Mendis’s and Jayasuriya’s participation in the third game is unlikely owing to injuries, which occurred following a collision between the two players while fielding.
Mendis has suffered an injury on his knee on the right leg, while Jayasuriya has sustained an injury, above the knee on his right leg.
Kusal Mendis has undergone an MRI scan today(4) and the report is due later in the day.
De Mel said no replacements will be made to the squad for the injured players.
