Sri Lankan pacer Nuwan Pradeep has been ruled out of the two-Test series against Australia with a hamstring injury, Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed on Sunday (January 20).

He sustained a Grade 1 strain in his left hamstring while bowling during Sri Lanka’s warm-up game against Cricket Australia XI. Pradeep, though, after having had left the field after two overs on Thursday, underwent a scan on Friday before the eventual decision was taken.

Sri Lanka were fretting over the fitness of Kusal Mendis, who had received a nasty blow while fielding in the tour game. However, he was eventually declared fit to play the first Test.

Sri Lanka will play Australia in the first Test in Brisbane that begins on January 24.
