Cricket: Injury hits World Cup final

India and Sri Lanka have both lost players to injury ahead of tonight's Cricket World Cup final in Mumbai.

Indian left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra has succumbed to a fractured finger while Sri Lankan all rounder Angelo Mathews is out with a right side strain.

Mathews picked up the strain while fielding during Wednesday's semi-final win over the Black Caps.

Off-spinner Suraj Randiv, who was flown in on Thursday as cover along with veteran seamer Chaminda Vaas, has been cleared to join the squad as a replacement player.
