Ahmedabad:

Sri Lankan pacer Dammika Prasad is a doubtful starter for the second Test against India starting in Kanpur from November 24 due to a hamstring injury, captain Kumar Sangakkara said on Friday.

"I don't think he (Dammika) would play as it seems right now he may not be available," Sangakkara said at the post-match press conference after the first Test ended in a draw here.

Prasad bowled just four overs today out of the wicketless 13 overs he sent down in India's second innings before a hamstring problem forced him to leave the field.

The 30-year-old right arm pacer scalped two wickets during India's first innings, giving away 106 runs from his 22 overs.

Prasad has so far represented Sri Lanka in only four Tests and five One-Day Internationals and scalped 13 and five wickets respectively.
