The all-round human injury during the LPL semi-final on Sunday
Angelo Mathews will probably not be available for the trip from Sri Lanka to South Africa, thanks to the hamstring injury he suffered during the Lanka Premier League semi-final at Colombo Kings.
The extent of Mathews’ injury is not yet known, but the initial prediction is that he will miss the two Tests in South Africa, the first of which will start on December 26, although he may be able to return before the home Tests against England. , which begin on January 14th.

“The physicist rated it and said it looks like I’m going to get out of the South African series, but I’ll get a resonance today and confirm,” Mathews told ESPNcricinfo.
As captain of the Kings franchise, Mathews played all nine of his team’s LPL matches, and delivered 17.1 overs in the tournament. He suffered the injury just as he began his approach to the wrinkle during his fourth on Sunday. He left the field at once and did not return.
“[The injury] grew up, “Mathews said.” I wanted to rest and couldn’t rest during the tournament. Even the previous game I felt it a little bit, and then I felt it continue in the last game. “
Mathews had perennial poplars and calves that sometimes held him out for months at a time. He worked on his fitness over the past year, dropping a few pounds, but a likely popliteal strain came back to cast doubt on him for another tour.
