Australian opener Aaron Finch and aggressive batsman Chris Lynn have been ruled out of the two T20’s against Sri Lanka due to injuries. Finch has been ruled out due to a broken index finger whereas Lynn has suffered a second blow to his painful left shoulder.
“Aaron was hit on the right index finger when fielding a ball and subsequent X-rays have shown a fracture which means he will not be available for the remaining two T20 International matches,
“Chris dislocated his left shoulder whilst diving during a fielding drill at training today.
Consequently, he will be unavailable for the remaining matches and instead will return to Brisbane to undergo a further investigation to determine the full extent of the injury.” ” team physiotherapist David Beakley said in a media release on Monday.
Matthew Wade has been named as replacement of Chris Lynn.
The Australian team which won the ODI series by a margin of 4-1 is scheduled to play two T20I matches here. The first game will be played on September 6 in Pallekele whereas the second game will be played in Colombo.
