Summary

  • New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson on Sunday was ruled out of the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka.
  • The bowler fractured his thumb during the training session and hence has been ruled out of the series.
  • The thumb has been put in a splint and is expected to take four to six weeks to recover; so we are optimistic he will be available for the five-game T20 series against England,” Kiwi coach Gary Stead said in a statement.
  • New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by five wickets in the first T20I of the three-match series on Sunday.
  • New Zealand and Sri Lanka will next lock horns in the second T20I on September 3.
