“The player was found to be Covid positive when he was tested (Rapid Antigen Test) this morning, as he complained of feeling unwell,” Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.

“Jayawickrama was immediately isolated from the rest of the team members and now will remain in room isolation for five days.”

Mathews was ruled out on the third morning of the first Test and the team soon went down to Australia with touring spinner Nathan Lyon bagging nine wickets in the match.
