Malinga omitted by Sri Lanka

CRICKET: Sri Lanka will be without fast bowler Lasith Malinga and all-rounder Angelo Mathews for the upcoming Test series in England. Malinga is being saved for the one-day series while Mathews misses out on a place in the 16-man squad with a quad injury. Their absence leaves Sri Lanka’s bowling attack short of experience, with Dilhara Fernando as the leading seam bowler.
