Colombo: Sri Lanka may have to take part in the World T20 tournament without the services of Tillekeratne Dilshan as the opening batsman is still recovering from a finger injury, which he suffered during the ODI series in Bangladesh.
Chairman of selectors, Sanath Jayasuriya, said Dilshan’s finger injury had not fully healed. “He will be making the tour as a member of the squad,” Jayasuriya said.
Meanwhile, England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been ruled out of the tournament with a fractured hand. Chris Woakes has been as a replacement.
