Sydney: Sri Lanka has called all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna into its Cricket World Cup squad as a replacement for batsman Dimuth Karunaratne who suffered a broken finger in training.

The International Cricket Council has approved the replacement ahead of Sri Lanka's game against Australia in Sydney on Sunday.

Prasanna, who has played 22 one-day internationals for Sri Lanka, scoring 181 runs and taking 22 wickets as a leg spinner, joined the Sri Lanka squad in Australia earlier this week as cover for spinner Rangana Herath who suffered a hand injury in the win over England.

Herath had stitches inserted in his spinning finger and remains in doubt for the Australia match.
