Buttler ruled out of Sri Lanka matches

Jos Buttler has been ruled out of the rest of England’s white-ball matches against Sri Lanka after picking up an injury in the opening Twenty20 match in Cardiff, AFP. The wicketkeeper-batsman, who scored 68 not out in England’s win on Wednesday, had an MRI scan the following day, which revealed a small tear. “Buttler felt tightness and discomfort at the end of the game after a match-winning 68 not out secured an eight-wicket win,” said a statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board. “He will return home on Friday and
commence his rehabilitation programme.” England have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20 series after winning Thursday’s rain-affected
second game, also in Cardiff, by five wickets.
