The 18-year-old Kapugedara was ruled out after suffering a lateral ligament sprain on his right knee during a routine training session in Banglaore on Sunday. As the injury would take at least two weeks to heal, the management decided to send him home and summon Mubarak.
Kapugedera was picked for the tour on the strength of his school and Under-19 level. He was not expected to play in the Tests but had been included to give him exposure to the senior squad.
Meanwhile, scan reports on Marvan Atapattu have come back as negative and he will be fit to play in the first Test against India later this week. Atapattu had been forced to withdraw from the three-day practice game against an Indian Board President's XI with a stiff back.
