Sri Lanka's tour of New Zealand: Uncapped Vishwa Fernando replaces injured Dhammika Prasad

New Delhi: Sri Lanka Cricket has called up uncapped left-arm seamer Vishwa Fernando as a replacement for the injured Dhammika Prasad for their tour of New Zealand.

Fernando, 24, has featured in Sri Lanka's Test squads to the UAE and Bangladesh in 2014. He was also picked in the squad for the home series against India in August this year, but did not get a game.

Prasad sustained a back injury during the tour game against New Zealand Board President's XI in Queenstown.
