Sri Lanka are currently touring West Indies for 3-match Test series and are down by 0-1 after their defeat at Queen’s Park Oval. On June 13, a day before the second Test, Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Gamage took a flight back home. Gamage flew back due a to finger injury he sustained while batting in the first match. Mathews, on the other hand, had left for ‘personal’. Reports now suggest it is known that Mathews has returned home to be with his pregnant wife.

The couple is expecting a child anytime soon. Mathews became a proud father in February 2017. Interestingly, Angelo and Heshanie Silva had named this child Angelo as well. It is learnt that Silva has moved to her parents’ home in Colombo. The family is expecting a daughter.
