Farveez Maharoof is returning home from Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan due to injury.
The all-rounder sustained a groin problem during net practice ahead of the first Test of the two-match series in Karachi, which started on Saturday in Karachi.
"Maharoof is suffering from a groin injury and the doctors have advised him to rest," a team official said.
Sri Lanka's selectors are planning to send out a replacement - the identity of whom has yet to be decided - prior to the final Test in Lahore (Mar 1-5).
