Ashton Agar, the Australian spinner, was ruled out of the second Test in Sri Lanka on Saturday after failing to recuperate from an injury. Sri Lanka was routed by the foreigners, led by Pat Cummins, to take a 1-0 series lead. Due to a side strain suffered during the one-day international series last month, left-arm spinner Agar will be replaced in the squad for the final Test beginning on Friday by Jon Holland.

An official statement from Cricket Australia reads in part: “He has been undertaking rehabilitation in an endeavor to be available to play in this Test series, but has not recovered in time for this second match.”

A shifting Galle pitch helped Australian spinners Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Swepson take nine wickets in the first innings.

The hosts’ second innings were ended by part-time spinner Travis Head, who delivered figures of 4-10.

Holland, an Australian left-arm spinner, made his Test debut against Sri Lanka in 2016 when Australia was beaten 3-0.
