Ahmedabad: Sri Lankan opener Tillakaratne Dilshan and fast bowler Dammika Prasad suffering from fractured nose and a hamstring niggle respectively may not be able to take to the cricket field in the second Test against India to be played in Nagpur on Tuesday.
Dilshan reportedly suffered the injury during a practice session after colliding with a team-mate, when they were playing football, while Prasad pulled his hamstring muscle on the final day of the first Test at Ahmedabad, following which he could bowl only four overs.
Dilshan is a prolific run scorer for the Sri Lankan team, and had scored a century during the first Test.
While, Prasad was responsible for the early inroads into Team India first day misery. He had taken the wickets of Indian skipper MS Dhoni and middle order batsman VVS Laxman.
