England spearhead James Anderson has been ruled out of the ODI tour of Sri Lanka to continue his rehabilitation from the knee injury he suffered during the home series against Sri Lanka and India earlier this year. 

James Anderson has been ruled out of the upcoming one day tour to Sri Lanka to continue his rehabilitation on a pre-existing left knee injury,” the ECB said in a statement on Tuesday

Anderson experienced some knee discomfort during the summer and in preparation for the ICC Cricket World Cup will undergo a graded return to bowling programme over the next two months.

“Anderson’s return to bowling programme will include a period in South Africa in December with the England performance programme in preparation for the tri-series against Australia and India (in January) and the World Cup (in February and March).” 

England have already announced their 16-man squad for the ODI series against Sri Lanka and now with James Anderson also injured along with Stuart Broad, it’ll be a huge responsibility on the shoulders of Steven Finn and Chris Jordan to lead the bowling attack in the heat of Sri Lanka.
