Sri Lanka wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene has been ruled out for the second Test against England at Headingley after sustaining a finger injury while keeping during the first Test at Lord’s.

Kithuruwan Vithanage will take Jayawardene’s place on the Test roster, but it is likely that Dinesh Chandimal will don the gloves for the second Test.

Jayawardene has already undergone an X-ray on his finger, but there was no evidence of a fracture. However, since the bruising and swelling has not subsided, Jayawardene will return to Sri Lanka for treatment.
