In 4 innings, he has amassed only 36 runs and is not enjoying his time fielding at forward short-leg either. On Day One of third Test, Samarawickrama was struck by Murali Vijay's pull and was taken for a CT scan. He took a blow to his helmet on the last ball of the 30th over when Vijay whipped a Dilruwan Perera delivery towards on-side. The Lankan stayed on the field despite the blow, but umpire Nigel Llong called the team physio to check for concussion as a precautionary measure. Later, he was taken off the field and cleared of danger after the scan. He, however, did not take part in the remainder of the day's play. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Did you know?</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Incidentally, this is the consecutive time that Samarawickrama has been struck by a blow from Vijay's bat in the series. In Nagpur, the Sri Lankan was taken aback by a full-blooded Vijay sweep off Rangana Herath that struck him on the chest. He walked off the field and was cleared after X-rays showed no rib damage. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Sri-Lanka" target="_blank">Sri Lanka</a> are trailing 0-1 in the series and were made to work hard on the field on Saturday. Opting to bat, Virat Kohli and Vijay's ton have propelled India to 371 for 4.
