Yuvraj ruled out of Sri Lanka series
Advertisement
#1
India's middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh has been ruled out of the remaining two ODIs of the five-match series against Sri Lanka due to his finger injury.

"Due to the finger injury sustained earlier, Yuvraj Singh has been advised rest and therefore he will not play in the fourth and fifth ODI matches against Sri Lanka," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.

Yuvraj had sustained the injury during the second Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka in Mohali where the left-hander starred both with the bat and the ball to script India's series-levelling win.

The injury was serious enough to keep Yuvraj out of the first two ODIs, with Virat Kohli substituting him in the playing XI.

Yuvraj, who missed first two ODIs, played in the third match at Cuttack scoring 23 runs that India won by 7 wickets.

The Punjab southpaw is likely to miss the Bangladesh tour as well, where India play a tri-series against the hosts and Sri Lanka before a three-Test series in Bangladesh.
