COLOMBO: Indian opener Virender Sehwag will miss the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka with a hamstring injury.

Team manager Ranjib Biswal said Sehwag suffered the injury during India`s three-wicket win over Pakistan at Dambulla on Saturday and has been ordered to rest.

Sehwag will return home later on Monday, Biswal said. Dinesh Kartik is tipped to take Sehwag`s place.

Sehwag also missed the World Twenty20 this year in the West Indies due to a shoulder injury.

The tournament final is on Thursday, although India and Sri Lanka meet first in a dead rubber on Tuesday.
