Hashim Amla is in severe doubt for the third ODI against Sri Lanka after sustaining a grade one tear to his left groin muscle, while fielding during the second match in Colombo.

He did not bat after leaving the field in the 43rd over of Sri Lanka's innings.

Amla also missed the first match with muscles spasms in his neck.

Fielding at fine leg, Amla pursued a ball off Dinesh Chandimal's blade, and in his efforts to reel it in, leapt and fell hard on his left knee.
