Sri Lanka wicket-keeper Prasanna Jayawardene will be unavailable for selection for the second Test, due to a finger injury to his right hand, which he sustained while keeping during the first day at Lord's.

He will be replaced in the squad by batsman Kithuruwan Vithanage, with Dinesh Chandimal likely to take over the gloves at Headingley.

A Test specialist, Jayawardene had also missed Sri Lanka's Tests in Bangladesh this year due to a family bereavement.

There are two keepers in the Sri Lanka squad as well as Kumar Sangakkara, who can take the gloves at a pinch.
