There seems to be no end to Sri Lankan team's miseries as their skipper Angelo Mathews will not be able to bowl against India during their ICC Champions Trophy match in London on Thursday.

To make matters worse, senior batsman Chamara Kapugedera also sustained a knee injury during a training session and hobbled out of the ground in considerable pain.

Cricket Manager Asanka Gurusinha informed that Mathews will not be bowling and it will certainly affect the balance of the side.

Angelo is playing against India but he will only be batting. He is still not fit enough to bowl. As far as Kapu (Kapugedera) is concerned, it looked bad and we are still not sure whether we can avail his services.

It was learnt that Sri Lanka already had two replacements, who were travelling with the team.

We brought 17 players. We have a left-hander Dhanushka Gunathilake and off-spinner Dilruwan Perera.
