Sri Lanka suffer a major blow ahead of their opening Asia Cup encounter against Bangladesh after opener Danushka Gunathilaka was ruled out with a back injury.

He will be replaced by batting all-rounder, Shehan Jayasuriya in the side.

He was expected to join the side on Friday while Gunathilaka will take the return flight tomorrow ending his Asia Cup Championship prematurely.

“Unfortunately we will have to send him back due to back injury” Sri Lankan Cricket team Manager Charith Senanayake said.(Champika Fernando)

    Right, so who's next? Mathews.......or maybe Malinga perhaps. Any other nominees to take the flight back home? Its a free trip to Dubai after all.
