Kapugedera ruled out of the Champions Trophy

Sri Lankan batsman Chamara Kapugedera has been ruled out of the Champions Trophy due to injury to his right knee, which he suffered during training on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka will replace him with the opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka, who was on their stand-by list for Champions Trophy.

A board release said,



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.


Gunathilaka will be officially replacing Kapugedera in the Champions Trophy and will play the match against India.
