England will wait for the result of scans on Jonny Bairstow’s right ankle before deciding on whether to call up a replacement batter for their T20I squad to play Sri Lanka.
Bairstow suffered the injury while batting for Yorkshire on Wednesday evening. He was able to continue to bat, going on to a 48-ball century, but was limping heavily, requiring a runner, and was later unable to field. He left the ground wearing a moonboot and was due to undergo a scan on Thursday. The results are expected to be known within 24 hours.
