Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the upcoming one-day international series (ODI) against Sri Lanka due to a stress-related injury to his right shin, DawnNews reported on Saturday.
During the second Test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates, Amir had to walk off the field after bowling just three overs during the second day due to a recurring shin injury he had sustained on Friday.
Amir underwent a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan today, following complains of pain in his right shin, after which he was advised to rest for two or three weeks.
Amir's name was included in the squad announced on Friday for the ODI series that will start on October 13. However, following his injury, a replacement has yet to be announced.
Amir will not bowl in the ongoing Test match at the Dubai Cricket Stadium but would be available to bat.
