Sri Lanka relish suffered a predominant blow to their squad for the drawing end sequence against West Indies, with opener Dimuth Karunaratne out of at the least segment of the tour with destroy.

An x-ray has confirmed the presence of a break within the index finger of Karunaratne’s left hand, which is prepared to rule him out for at the least a couple of weeks. If the break requires surgical treatment – and a resolution on that entrance will be revamped the next 24 hours – he’ll nearly with out a doubt be out except July. The three Assessments against West Indies are scheduled for June.

“It is a clear crack within the finger, and for now I of path were in actual fact helpful that I it is going to be out for the West Indies tour,” Karunaratne in actual fact helpful ESPNcricinfo. “But I of path prefer to heed every other surgeon sooner than we know exactly what’s occurring.”

The destroy had been sustained whereas Karunaratne was batting within the nets within the advance to Sri Lanka’s Massive Provincial one-day tournament, the first round of which started on Wednesday.

The destroy adds to an already heaving Sri Lanka destroy roster. Bowlers Nuwan Pradeep, Dushmantha Chameera and Shehan Madushanka are already in serious doubt for the West Indies tour. Given Karunaratne’s success in 2017 – he was the fifth-perfect Test bustle scorer in 2017, with 1031 runs – his doable absence is the counseled blow yet.
