Sri Lankan all-rounder Tilakaratne Dilshan has suffered a minor ankle sprain but the team management is confident of his availability for the first Test against India starting at Ahmedabad on November 16.
"It's a minor ankle sprain. He batted today (in the indoor nets) for some time. He should be okay in a couple of days. As of now the reports are very positive. He has to see how it feels while practicing on the field. Hopefully he should be fit for the first Test," visiting team manger Brendon Kuruppu told reporters at the MCA's Recration Centre in Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai.
"He's okay and there's no need to panic. We will assess the injury at the ground. He suffered the injury while playing a warm-up game (Wednesday) at the MCA's indoor stadium (with his teammates)," Kuruppu said. PTI
