Sri Lanka suffered a major blow to their ODI campaign against India when two of their main strike bowlers were ruled out due to injury.

 

Muralitharan injured himself during the Test series, Fernando hurt himself during yesterday's opening one-dayer here while attempting a return catch from Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

 

Trailing 0-1 in the five-match series following the narrow three-run defeat in the series-opener, Sri Lanka have brought in two new off-spinners, Muthumudalige Pushpakumara and Suraj Randiv, in the squad to make up for Muralitharan's absence.

 

"We have decided to rest Murali from the One-Day series to allow him to recover fully from the finger injury and to be available for future tournaments," Kuruppu said.
