Injury has become synonymous with the Sri Lankan team. There were two more casualties reported in the Sri Lankan camp.
The 23-year-old top order batsman Pathum Nissanka also has suffered a forearm injury.
"Just before the match on Sunday, Pathum sustained an injury while practising," a source said.
"Pathum is in terrible pain".
The 24-year-old Asalanka sustained this injury during the first T-20I against India on Sunday.
"Asalanka was brought to this hospital after the match on Sunday (at around 12 midnight) and an MRI has been done", one of the sources at the Nawaloka Hospital said to this reporter.
"We are awaiting his report and his participation in the remaining two matches will only be decided by the team medical panel. The latest information we gathered is he attended the gym session under the watchful eyes of the physio and trainer". the source further added.
Asalanka made debut in this match.
"He has not been a regular player in the side and this type of hamstring injury can happen due to the heavy workload any player has to carry while playing for the national team", a source added.
Bhanuka Rajapaksha who missed the first match due to finger injury is on a recovery path.
Two injured fast bowlers Kasun Rajitha and Shiran Fernando have left the team bio-bubble and headed home, whereas Binura Fernando is also ruled out of the remaining two matches. He, however, is staying with the team for rehabilitation.
