Chandimal, who was playing his first match of the series Sunday, sustained the injury while negotiating a bouncer from fast bowler Hardik Pandya.

India won the day-night game, the third of five matches in the series, by six wickets to take an unassailable 3-0 lead.

"Test Captain Dinesh Chandimal will be out of action for the rest of series after sustaining a hairline fracture to his right thumb," Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.

The batsman would consult a specialist in Colombo to help the board get an idea of the timeline of his recovery, SLC added.

The fourth one-dayer will be played in Colombo on Thursday with the fifth and final match slated for Sunday at the same venue.

The only Twenty20 between the sides is on 6 September.
