Allrounder left the field after soft-tissue injury and could miss two-three weeks

Dhananjaya de Silva is a doubt for the rest of Sri Lanka’s Test series in South Africa after retiring hurt on 79 on the first day of the Centurion Test.

De Silva came in with Sri Lanka in trouble at 54 for 3, but his fluent innings had taken them to 185 with no further loss when he completed a single off the bowling of Lutho Sipamla. However, he immediately looked to be in severe discomfort, collapsing to the ground, and had to be helped off the field and into the dressing room.

He will undergo an MRI scan on Saturday evening on what is believed to be a soft-tissue injury to a muscle near his thigh – possibly his quadriceps – and while Sri Lanka offered no official comment as to its severity, his team-mate Dinesh Chandimal suggested that de Silva himself was not optimistic.
