Colombo: Sri Lanka will have to do without Lasith Malinga for about three-and-a-half months as the speedster has planned to get his troubled ankle treated in Australia.

National Selector Pramodaya Wickramasingha said that the right-armer would be soon flying to Australia for treatment to an ankle injury and will be out of action for 14 weeks.

This would mean that Malinga, who only plays in the shorter versions of the game will be unavailable for the seven-match ODI home series against England starting November 26.
