Chandimal fails fitness test

Test captain Dinesh Chandimal will miss the third and final Test against England after failing a fitness test on his strained groin.

Chandimal underwent a test on Monday where he fielded and batted but was still uncomfortable to be passed fit to play in a five-day Test.

He suffered the injury – a grade one tear during the first Test at Galle and was ruled out of the second Test at Pallekele – both matches which Sri Lanka lost.
