Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka has been ruled out of the World Cup after suffering a thigh injury, with Chamika Karunaratne approved as a replacement in the squad, the International Cricket Council said Saturday.

Shanaka sustained a right thigh muscle injury in Tuesday's six-wicket loss to Pakistan.

The 32-year old will need three weeks to recover.

"The event technical committee of the Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 India has approved Chamika as a replacement for Shanaka in the Sri Lankan squad," the ICC said.

Sri Lanka, who are seventh in the standings after losing their first two games, next play Australia Monday in Lucknow.
