Lasith Malinga said on Tuesday that they missed their "main bowler" Isuru Udana who got injured during warm-up just before they went out to defend 143 in the second T20I against India.
Isuru Udana displayed the perfect example of sportsman spirit by refusing to run an injured batsman out during a Mzansi Super League game.
South Africa clinched the three-match Twenty20 international series with a 16-run win over Sri Lanka in the second game at SuperSport Park.
Sri Lanka managed to combine an aggressive bowling attack with ruthless batting to annihilate India by 9 wickets and level the 5 match series 1-1, on Tuesday.
Isuru Udana, the left-arm medium pace bowler, made a return to Sri Lanka's 15-man squad for the five One-Day Internationals and the one-off Twenty20 against India starting July 21.
