England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has been ruled out of the remainder of England Men’s Vitality IT20s and Royal London ODIs against Sri Lanka after sustaining a right calf injury in England’s first IT20 victory at Sophia Gardens on Wednesday.

He underwent an MRI scan in Cardiff on Thursday morning, which revealed a small tear.

Buttler felt tightness and discomfort at the end of the game after a match-winning 68 not out secured an eight-wicket win.

He will return home today and commence his rehabilitation programme.

Yorkshire batsman Dawid Malan has been added to the ODI squad for the forthcoming Sri Lanka Royal London ODI Series.
