Canberra, Feb 2 (CRICKETNMORE):  Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne has been declared in "no danger" after being stretchered off in a neck brace while handling a nasty hit from Australia pacer Pat Cummins on Day 2 of the second Test between Australia and Sri Lanka here on Saturday.

Thirty-year-old Karunaratne, who was 46 not out when he was hit in the back of the neck by a bouncer from Cummins, fell to the ground dropping his bat before the Australian cricketers ran for help.
