Benoni (South Africa): Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara is likely to miss the first Test against South Africa at Centurion after splitting the webbing between his index finger and his second finger on his right hand.

Sangakkara suffered the injury, which required three stitches, during the three-day practice match against South African Invitation XI, Island Cricket reports.

Sri Lankan team manager Anura Tennakoon is however confident that the injury would “settle over the next three to four days”.

The match starts on Thursday.
