Newly appointed Sri Lankan skipper for the limited overs matches, Angelo Mathews, is being treated for an injury in the right hamstring which occurred when the stylish all-rounder was batting during yesterday’s tri-series clash against Zimbabwe which is going on in Bangladesh.

As per the reports from the team management, Angelo Mathews is currently being monitored for a decision on his possible participation in the next game of the tournament.

Mathews has been pegged by several injuries all through his career and especially in the recent past, injuries have stalled the progress of Mathews.

He has almost quit bowling from the longest format, and as of now, it looks like he could have a similar fate in the limited overs matches too. If the team management wants him in the team, then he should be played solely as a batsman and not an all-rounder which is hindering his career and might also bring a premature end to his career.

A month back it was yet again the hamstring injury which forced him to miss the final T20I clash against India.

“Angelo will not play the last game of the series. According to the physiotherapist Nirmalan Dhanabalasingham, he will be out for about two weeks,” Sri Lanka’s team manager Asanka Gurusinha had told Cricbuzz during that time. Mathews was plagued with several injuries all through the 2017 and he won’t like to have a similar fate in 2018 as well.

There is no doubt about the fact that Mathews is one of the most important members of the Sri Lankan unit especially because they are in the process of rebuilding and an experienced campaigner like Mathews is a must for Sri Lanka going forward.
