Dilshan ruled out of first Test vs NZ
Sri Lanka will miss opener Tillakaratne Dilshan for the first Test against New Zealand commencing in Galle today.
Dilshan suffered a back injury that ruled him out of the last couple of one-dayers against the visiting Kiwis.
It may be recalled, the swashbuckling opener’s unbeaten century in the third one-dayer helped Sri Lanka take lead in the five-match series. Dilshan would be replaced by Dimuth Karunaratne.
