Sri Lanka call up Karunaratne as Kumara replacement

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka have called up right-arm fast bowler Chamika Karunaratne to replace the injured Lahiru Kumara for the second Test against Australia and confirmed that fellow quick Dushmantha Chameera had also been ruled out due to injury.

Kumara suffered a torn hamstring on the second day of the first test in Brisbane, which Sri Lanka lost by an innings and 40 runs, while Chameera has injured his left ankle. Both injured players will return to Sri Lanka on Tuesday, selectors said in a brief statement. The second and final Test begins in Canberra on Friday.
