National selectors have announced plans to send spinner Rangana Herath to England to replace injured Suranga Lakmal.

Lakmal was ruled out of the remaining ODIs against England after sustaining tear on his right hamstring while running between wickets in the first ODI.

While Lakmal was replaced by Dhammika Prasad in the playing XI for the second ODI on Sunday, the SLC says Herath has been added to the squad as Lakmal’s replacement.

Sri Lanka were not the only team with injury concerns, as England skipper Alastair Cook was ruled out of the second match with a niggle.
