"Chandimal's injury is grade one tear, and it will take 10 to 14 days to recover, so it will be touch and go for the second test match", coach Chandika Hathurusingha said.
"Jonny, fully fit, would have played this Test match, probably would have performed well, done well with the gloves and scored runs and we wouldn't be having this conversation", insisted Prior. The batting, especially Athapaththu, will have to come good if they are to challenge a strong England side.
"It's been a privilege and honour to play for my country, because in Sri Lanka we have 22 million people, so very few get the opportunity to play for Sri Lanka, so that's a remarkable achievement and honour for any player", he added.
Herath claimed three wickets in his 93rd and final test at the same venue where the 40-year-old left-arm spinner made his debut against Australia in 1999.

New numbers: Kyrsten Sinema ahead in U.S. Senate race vote count
McSally's second and successful bid for the seat ended with a recount in December of 2014, more than one month after the election. Hundreds of thousands of ballots were still uncounted as the two congresswomen were separated by only a few thousand votes.
Kaushal was leg before sweeping Leach for 30 and Karunaratne skipped down the pitch and was caught and bowled by Ali for 26.
The openers began the day well with a 51-run stand, rationing England to a solitary chance in the first hour - Dimuth Karunaratne uncharacteristically dropped by Ben Stokes at slip to deny Moeen.
The Englishmen are now having an outing in Sri Lanka for a complete series that includes five ODIs, one T20Is and three Tests. Stokes shrugged off his early tentativeness to clobber three sixes in his 62 before Perara spun one past his bat to hit the top of the off-stump with a attractive delivery.
Dhananjaya de Silva, who had made a confident start to his innings, was caught at first slip by skipper Joe Root off Ben Stokes in the last over of the session for 21. In the first innings, for example, Niroshan Dickwella pushed at a Moeen Ali delivery, and put it straight in the hands of the short cover that had been placed there for exactly that stroke.
And the England spinner finally took the big wicket of Mathews in his next over, sticking the ball in the pitch for Jos Buttler to make a simple catch. He was followed into the pavilion by Akila Dananjaya for 8.
England´s varied attack, with three quicks and three spinners, applied substantial pressure, with the slightly expensive Rashid the only minor disappointment.
