England seamer Stuart Broad is to fly home after being ruled out of the second Test against Sri Lanka with a calf strain.
Broad played in England's first Test defeat in Galle despite struggling with a sprain to his left ankle in the build-up to the match.
He then suffered an injury to his right calf during the game and was in visible discomfort as he batted in the second innings.
England sent him for scans today and have opted to fly him home for rehabilitation.
Broad took two wickets in the first Test, removing the dangerous Tillakaratne Dilshan with the new ball in each innings.
There are now question marks over his participation in the Indian Premier League for the second year running.
He signed a three-year deal with King's XI Punjab but missed last year's tournament with a stomach injury sustained at the World Cup.
An England and Wales Cricket Board statement read: "England pace bowler Stuart Broad has been ruled of the final Test against Sri Lanka after a scan today confirmed a right calf strain.
"Broad will return to the UK immediately for further assessment before beginning a rehabilitation programme which will determine his availability for all cricket including the IPL."
With just Tuesday's second Test left on their tour of Sri Lanka England have not sent for a replacement, leaving Tim Bresnan and Steven Finn to battle for a place in the side.
