Injured Dilshan likely to miss match against India

January 05, 2010 09:36 IST

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

Going on from where he left off in India, Dishan played through the pain and scored his third century in six matches.

The Lankan lions will hope to avenge their recent series loss by getting the better of India on Tuesday.
