India & Lanka all set for final league

Mirpur: India and Sri Lanka are all set to face up to each other in the 5th match of the tri-nation tournament currently underway in Dhaka.

In-form Sri opener Tillakaratne Dilshan is almost certain to play Sunday's final league match against India, Sri Lankan team manager Brendon Kuruppu said on Friday.

Sri Lanka are sitting pretty at the top of the points table, and are already through to the final, but would be keen to follow up their previous victory over the subcontinental giants with another one, following their recent 3-1 series defeat at the hands of the Indians.

Talking to reporters after the Lankans crushed Bangladesh by nine wickets, Kuruppu said Dilshan has almost recovered from his groin injury and is set to play on Sunday.
