Sri Lanka's Sangakkara doubtful for first test

SYDNEY, Oct 31 (Reuters) Sri Lanka wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara is struggling to be fit for next week's first test against Australia due to a hamstring injury, Cricinfo Web site (www.cricinfo.com) reported today.

The experienced vice-captain suffered the injury during Sri Lanka's tour match in Adelaide and is doubtful for the test starting on November 8 in Brisbane.

''I would say it's definitely a grade one tear but we will have to see when the MRIs are assessed,'' Sangakkara said.

Sri Lanka play Queensland in a three-day tour match starting on Friday. Prasanna Jayawardene is likely to replace Sangakkara as wicketkeeper.
