Kusal Perera ruled out of Zim series

Sri Lanka’s hard-hitting wicket-keeper batsman Kusal Perera is out of the current Zimbabwe series and is even doubtful for the series against India starting later next month.

“Kusal is out for the whole series against Zimbabwe. The physio says he will be out for at least 8-12 weeks. He is also touch and go for the Indian series. We will have to closely monitor him,” said Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews.

Perera picked up a hamstring injury during Sri Lanka’s seven-wicket win against India at the Oval during the Champions Trophy in England early this month. Meanwhile, Mathews stated that he will not be bowling in Test cricket but has restricted himself to only ODIs and T20Is.
