Dilshan unlikely for match against India

Dhaka:

In-form Sri Lankan opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan is almost certain to miss Tuesday's cricket tri-series match against India after he suffered a groin injury during the tournament opener against hosts Bangladesh on Monday.

Dilshan who masterminded his side to a seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh with a 122-ball 104 at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, suffered a groin injury during the 34th over of the Sri Lanka innings and he is unlikely to play against India on Tuesday.

"Dilshan has pulled a muscle in the groin region. We are hoping that he will be able to play at some point in the tournament," Sangakkara, who came out as runner in the 35th over for Dilshan, said after the match.
