Vice captain of the Sri Lanka women's cricket team, Chamani Seneviratne is to miss the ICC Women’s World Cup 2009 scheduled to begin tomorrow in Australia.

Asheley De Silva, Operational Director of the Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed that the 30-year-old all-rounder was ruled out from the tournament due to a knee injury.

Chamani was injured during her team’s first warm-up match against New South Wales at Old Kings.

The event technical committee of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2009 has approved Sanduni Abeywickrama as a replacement player for Chamani on medical grounds.

According to Ms. De Silva, Chamani would miss the entire tournament as doctors have instructed her to rest for few months.

The World Cup tournament begins Saturday with Asia's biggest rivals India and Pakistan playing the first match.

Sri Lanka will meet the mighty English women in the tournament opener in Canberra tomorrow. Sri Lanka will play against Pakistan on Monday March 09 in Canberra and India on Thursday March 12 in Bankstown.
