Sanath Jayasuriya, the Chairman of selectors, said either wicket-keeper batsman Niroshan Dickwella or left-handed batsman Kithuruwan Withanage would replace Sangakkara in case the senior batsman fails to make it.

Sangakkara in a tweet had questioned the wisdom of the tour at a time when the Sri Lankan squad was going through a specially designed fitness programme.

The SLC in a statement had later defended the decision to undertake the tour citing the long standing good relations between them and the BCCI.
