Former Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews, who is currently with the national team in the West Indies will return to the island, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said today.

In a media release SLC said, "The purpose of his return is to attend to a family matter. Mathews will depart West Indies today."

It is not immediately clear if Mathews will be available for the Test leg of the tour. 

Despite his poor run of form in the West Indies -- with scores of 5, 13 and 11 in the three T20Is and contributing just 5 in the first ODI -- his departure will come as a blow to Sri Lanka, as the all-rounder is the most senior player on tour. 

The second ODI will be at the Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua tomorrow (12).

    If all Sri Lankan's have to go through mandatory 14 days quarantine, I believe as the law is equal to everybody this cricketer must go through 14 days quarantine.

    Good riddance. Next should be Chandimal. A blow to SL. What nonsense, makes no difference if he is there or not. Bring in fresh and young talent.

    Come on people. Have some respect and decency. His child is seriously ill with an abnormal heart condition. That's why he had to return.
