  • Jonny Bairstow suffered ligament damage after twisting his ankle in a game of football during a training session

Jonny Bairstow faces a fight to be fit for the first Test against Sri Lanka after a scan confirmed he will be out for two weeks with an ankle ligament injury suffered playing football.

England brought in Alex Hales to replace Yorkshire's Bairstow for Saturday's fourth match, with victory giving them a series-winning 3-0 lead.

Bairstow missed the fourth one-day global in Kandy on Saturday and will miss the fifth and final ODI in Colombo tomorrow, as well as the one-off T20 worldwide this Saturday, after a scan yesterday revealed that he had damaged a ligament in his right ankle.

Josh Gordon stepped up against Bears in Rob Gronkowski's absence
About four or five defenders swarmed White after he leaped to haul in that long heave and spun toward the goal line. But the Patriots beat the Bears for the eighth time in nine games since the 1985 team got routed in the Super Bowl.

Watch the fifth and final ODI, in Colombo, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 9.30am on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old will be monitored by the England medical team on a daily basis with a further update on his fitness given in due course ahead of the three-Test series in Sri Lanka, which starts in Galle on November 6.

While there are several wicketkeeping options within England's Test squad - not least Jos Buttler, who kept in the Ageas Bowl Test against India after Bairstow sustained a finger injury, Rory Burns and Ollie Pope, who kept for England Lions during the English domestic season - any concerns over Bairstow's ability to keep could result in a call-up for Surrey's Ben Foakes, who is regarded by many as the best keeper in England.
