An ambulance had to be rushed on to the field of play after Kusal Perera sustained injuries while attempting a catch at the long-on boundary. He was immediately rushed to the hospital for a scan.
 
The incident occurred in the 29th over, with West Indies reeling on 82 for 9. Kusal intercepted a slog but lost control with the momentum from his lap taking him beyond the boundary.
 
He overbalanced and crashed into the advertising hoardings, thereby landing awkwardly on his frontside.
 
Kusal immediately clutched his chest and signaled for assistance. The play was halted and dinner break was taken.
 
With an hour to go for stumps, it was confirmed by the official broadcasters that Kusal was still under observation in hospital and wouldn't bat for the remainder of the day.
 
In his absence, Danushka Gunathilaka and Mahela Udawatte opened in Sri Lanka's quest to chase down 144.
 
At stumps on day three, Sri Lanka was on 81 for 5, needing 63 runs with 5 wickets intact.
 
Earlier in the day, the visitors resuming on 99 for 5, were bowled out for 154 in their first innings.
 
The home team who made 204 in their first innings, were shot out for 93 runs in their second innings.
