Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara's recovery from the hand injury that ruled him out of the ODI and T20I series against Australia is on track.
Sangakkara fractured his left hand while batting during the second Test in Melbourne, and was subsequently sidelined from the limited-overs leg of the tour.
The veteran left-hander, however, hoped to play for the Nondescripts Cricket Club at domestic level next month in a bid to regain full fitness ahead of June's Champions Trophy and July's ODI tri-series against India and the West Indies.
"The good news on my finger is that it is healing fast and I am regaining movement every day. Will aim to be in the nets by the end of this month and hopefully play for NCC in mid-February to get ready for next series," Sangakkara wrote on Facebook.
The series is currently locked at one win apiece after Australia's 107-run triumph in Melbourne and Sri Lanka's eight-wicket victory in Adelaide. Brisbane, Sydney and Hobart will host matches three, four and five on 18, 20 and 23 January respectively. Two T20Is will follow.
