Gambhir to miss final Sri Lanka test

MUMBAI (Reuters) - In-form India opener Gautam Gambhir will miss next week's third and final test against Sri Lanka in Mumbai so he can attend his sister's wedding, the cricket board (BCCI) said on Friday.

India's selectors retained the rest of the squad that played in the first two tests of the series, but did not name a replacement for Gambhir, who scored his fourth century in as many tests in the second match in Kanpur.

The first test in Ahmedabad ended in a draw while Sri Lanka are in danger of losing the match in Kanpur after being forced to follow on.
