Sangakkara was injured by a short ball from Ashok Dinda that hit him on the glove. The incident happened in the last ball of the 15th over. Although Sangakkara was in considerable pain and the physio was summoned, the former captain continued batting. He was finally dismissed by Dinda after scoring a well compiled 73.
Sangakkara's absence is certainly going to take some sheen out of the Sri Lankan Premier League.
