Sri Lanka’s veteran batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan is in doubt for the upcoming Asia Cup after picking up a finger injury which has ruled him out of the rest of the ongoing series against Bangladesh.
“He would return home today,” Sri Lanka Cricket announced.
He may miss the Asia Cup tournament also to be played in Bangladesh from February 25 as the selectors would not want to risk him ahead of the World T20 also to be held in Bangladesh from March 16.
The left-handed middle-order batsman Lahiru Thirimanna would replace Dilshan for the Bangladesh tour.
Dilshan hurt his finger in the second ODI which Sri Lanka won on Thursday to clinch the series.

Afridi hurts jaw in practice match
The Pakistan cricket team suffered an injury scare ahead of the Asia Cup when their flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi hurt his jaw during a practice match at the Gaddafi stadium.
“Although the injury is not a serious one but doctors have advised him to speak less for two days because the impact was on the jaw,” national coach Moin Khan told reporters.
Afridi was hit near the jaw when trying to paddle sweep pacer Junaid Khan. The ball flew off the edge of the bat and hit his helmet’s visor which struck the jaw. Afridi was seen walking around with a big bruise on the right side of his face.
