 Farveez Maharoof will miss tomorrow’s ODI due to lower back pain, the team sources reported, possible replacements are  Sachitra Senanayake or Dhammika Prasad, Chanaka Welegedera.

Farveez Maharoof injured his back while fielding in the game in Hobart  vs India, where he took the wicket of  the dangerous Virender Sehwag early on, Maharoof has been fighting back problems since the start of his career which has affected his fitness. It is likely if Sri Lanka are to qualify for the Finals ,Farveez Maharoof will have enough time to regain fitness and feature back in the XI.

Maharoof bowled only 3 overs for 21 runs for the solitary  wicket of Sehwag.
