Kulasuriya cleared of serious injury

There was a scary moment during Sri Lanka"s warm-up match against South Africa in Adelaide on Sunday when Achini Kulasuriya was struck on the head as she misjudged a catch as the two teams practiced a Super Over following the completion of their full game.

Kulasuriya lay on the ground for a period of time as she was treated by medical staff before being taken off a stretcher and sent to hospital. However, she was released back to the team hotel later in the day without a serious injury.

Speaking at the captain"s day in Sydney on Monday, Chamari Atapattu said Kulasuriya would miss Sri Lanka"s next warm-up match against England tomorrow but is expected to be fit for the start of the tournament itself when Sri Lanka face New Zealand in Perth.
