Dilshan suffers broken nose, manager says will be fine

Kanpur:

Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan has suffered a fracture on his nose while playing football but his team manager says he will be available for the second Test match here, starting on Tuesday.

Dilshan collided with one of his team-mates while playing football after the first Test in Ahmedabad on Friday and he was immediately rushed to a hospital for an X-ray examination.

Brendon Kuruppu, the Sri Lanka's team manager, though said there was no need to worry as the injury was not serious.

"The injury was put right by the surgeon before we left for Kanpur and Dilshan is out of danger," Kuruppu said.

"He is not in any kind of great discomfort. He will resume practice with the rest of the team tomorrow," he was quoted as saying by a cricket website.

Prior to the first Test, Dilshan sprained his ankle during practice but recovered in time to score a century.
