Sri Lanka batsman Chamara Kapugedera has been ruled out of the Champions Trophy with an injury to his right knee.
He has been replaced by opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka.
‘Kapugedara [had] a heavy pounding on the right knee when he landed on it awkwardly during a fielding drill this morning, and radiographic investigation has revealed a meniscal tear coupled with an acute tendon injury,’ a board release said.
‘Tournament and SLC Medical experts have recommended a supervised convalescence of two weeks, followed by a review of the injury.’
Sri Lanka play India in a do-or-die match on Thursday.
