Gunaratne ruled out of T20 tri-series

Sri Lanka batsman Asela Gunaratne has been ruled out of next month’s T20 tri-series – the Nidahas Trophy – with an injury on his right arm. An SLC release said he sustained a “grade II rotator cuff strain with contusion” while taking part in a fielding drill on their recent tour of Bangladesh. Although Sri Lanka won each of the three trophies that had been up for grabs, the 32-year old did not have the best time personally: he made only 35 runs in five ODIs.

To add to Sri Lanka’s troubles, fast bowler Shehan Madushanka is struggling with a hamstring problem and is also in doubt for the Nidahas Trophy, which is due to begin on March 6. Sri Lanka play the first match against India in Colombo.
