Durham fast bowler Mark Wood has been ruled out of the Test tour of Sri Lanka with a left side strain.

Wood sustained the injury at the end of the South Africa tour earlier this month. He underwent several scans in London, which confirmed a small tear to his left side.

He will now commence an injury rehabilitation programme, working with England and Durham medical teams respectively. 

Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood will replace Wood. The England Test squad travels to Sri Lanka on Monday.
