Canberra: Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne was hit by a bouncing delivery on his helmet and was taken off the field at Manuka Oval on a stretcher.

Karunaratne crumpled to the ground after ducking into a Pat Cummins bouncer which rocketed into the back of his helmet after tea on the second day Saturday.

 

The 30-year-old Karunaratne, who was unbeaten on 46, left the ground on a motorized stretcher.

He appeared to be conscious, although medical staff appeared concerned about his neck.
