He left the South Africa tour early this year due to calf injury. Returning after five months of injury in 2017 Champions Trophy, he played as a specialist batsman. Mathews, however, again hurt his calf during the series against Pakistan at UAE that ruled him out of international cricket for 8 weeks. <p></p> <p></p>Upon return in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india" target="_blank">India</a> series, Mathews was the best batsman during the tour. He notched up a century during the third and final Test at Delhi. He even brought up a century in the second ODI at Mohali in response to Rohit Sharma s double-century. <p></p> <p></p>However, his wounds seem to find no time to heal, just like <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/sri-lanka" target="_blank">Sri Lanka</a> s wounds seem to be aggravating. Sri Lanka were thrashed by Rohit s carnage and struggled against the Indian spinners in the second T20I. They not just lost the second T20I by 88 runs, but also handed yet another series win to India. <p></p> <p></p>Amidst all this, Mathews was seen hopping to the dressing room midway as he picked up a grade one hamstring injury. Mathews did not come to bat as well. To make the matters worse, Sri Lanka will be without their experienced all-rounder in the third and final T20I at Mumbai. <p></p> <p></p>Sri Lanka s team manager Asanka Gurusinha on Friday night confirmed of Mathews unavailability for the third T20I to <i>cricbuzz</i>, Angelo will not play the last game of the series. According to the physiotherapist Nirmalan Dhanabalasingham, he will be out for about two weeks. <p></p> <p></p>India will play the final leg of the tour at Mumbai following which the Indian players will be seen attending Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma s reception on December 26 at St Regis in Mumbai.
