Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath is doubtful for next weekend's World Cup Pool A clash against Australia after hurting his spinning hand while bowling against England at Wellington Regional Stadium tomorrow.

The left-arm spinner required four stitches on his left index finger after suffering the injury while attempting a difficult return catch from hard-hitting batsman Jos Buttler in the penultimate over of England's innings.

He left the field immediately with blood dripping from the wound.
