Colombo, July 21 (IBNS): Sri Lanka Cricket on Friday confirmed that Test Captain Dinesh Chandimal has been hospitalised following a diagnosis of Pneumonia and he will miss the first Test against India.

Rangana Herath will lead Sri Lanka in the Test in his absence.

The first Test will be played in Galle between July 26– 30.

"The newly appointed captain, who led his side to a historic Test victory, chasing the highest ever total on Asian soil earlier this week contracted a viral influenza that has been dogging the Sri Lankan team over the past few weeks and was recommended a rest period of 3-5 days yesterday, but was hospitalised this morning when increased symptoms showed a development of Pneumonia," the board said in a statement.

The board further said:"Chandimal will miss the 1st Test against India in Galle on the 26th – 30th July, and in his absence the team will be led by spinner Rangana Herath."
