Dilshan suffers broken nose


dilshanSri Lanka’s opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan has fractured his nose after colliding with one of his team-mates while playing football following the first Test against India in Ahmedabad on Friday. Brendon Kuruppu, Sri Lanka’s team manager, confirmed the news upon arrival in Kanpur, the venue for the second Test starting Tuesday. Dilshan had to be rushed to hospital where an X-ray revealed the damage.

However, Dilshan may yet be available for the second Test. “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 (Sunday).”

This is Dilshan’s second injury on this tour. Prior to the first Test, he sprained his ankle during practice, but recovered in time to score a century.
