AUS Vs SL: In the ODI series being played against Sri Lanka, the difficulties of the Australian team are not being named. Australia batsman Steve Smith is set to be ruled out of the third one-day international against Sri Lanka as the former captain is battling an injury in the second match of the series. With Smith likely to sit out, this is the seventh player in the Australian white-ball team led by Aaron Finch to suffer an injury.

However, Steve Smith is likely to be available for the Test series. A media report from Australia claimed, “While the injury is not considered serious, it required rest and with the Test series starting in just 11 days, Australia’s medical staff decided to be on alert.” “

The report quoted Australia wicket-keeper Alex Carey as saying, “25-year-old left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhneman has been recalled from the Australia A squad as regular white-ball spinner Ashton Agar also suffered a side strain. Was dropped from the team.”

Starc is also injured

In addition, Travis Head is sent to Kandy from Hambantota as cover for the injured Marcus Stoinis. Fast bowler Mitchell Starc is also already injured. Starc is certain to be out of the third ODI. Nothing can be said about whether Starc will be able to be a part of the last two matches of the series or not.

The five-match series being played between Australia and Sri Lanka is currently tied at 1-1. The third ODI of the series is to be played on Sunday.
