Sydney: Australia's middle-order batsman Chris Lynn was on Thursday ruled out of the national squad for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka, starting February 17.
The 26-year-old aggravated a bulging disc in his neck and was replaced by Ben Dunk for the three-match series.
"Chris resumed some light training as part of his rehabilitation but was still unable to function at the level he needs to play international cricket due to his existing neck injury," team Physiotherapist Kevin Sims was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
"Chris will be seeing a specialist later this week and from there we will have a better understanding of the ongoing management, along with the return to play timeframes," he added.
Aaron Finch (captain), Patrick Cummins, Ben Dunk, James Faulkner, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Michael Klinger, Tim Paine, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.
