Sri Lanka suffer injury setback ahead of Asia Cup

The Sri Lankan team is facing further injury concerns ahead of the Asia Cup, which starts in the UAE on Saturday.

All-rounder Danushka Gunathilaka will miss the tournament due to a lower back injury, and he will be replaced by Shehan Jayasuriya.

Batsman Dinesh Chandimal was earlier ruled out with a broken finger.

Sri Lanka will face Bangladesh in the opening game at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

They head into the contest, having won just 10 of the 39 ODIs played since the beginning of 2017.
