Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a shin injury.
Amir went off the field towards the end of the first day of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Dubai, but he returned to bowl on the second day.
However, his time on the field was short-lived as after struggling through three overs, he came off and went for an MRI scan.
“Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a stress-related injury in the right shin,” a Pakistan Cricket Board press release said. “The fast bowler has been advised two to three weeks rest after he underwent an MRI scan today following complains of pain in his right shin.
“Amir will not bowl in the ongoing Test match at the Dubai Cricket Stadium but would be available to bat.
“Amir’s replacement in the ODI squad will be announced in due course.”
