Dilshan to leave IPL later than expected

Dilshan was reportedly keen to travel to England early to be there before the first tour game on May 14 to create a bond with the team as some of the senior players are joining late, but RCB captain Daniel Vettori today said the Sri Lankan opener would take the field tomorrow against Rajasthan Royals.

"I thought he is leaving before this match (for the Sri Lanka''s tour of England later this month) but he would be available for tomorrow''s match so any question of replacing him does not arise," Vettori said.

Sri Lanka Cricket last month allowed seven players from the 16-member squad to arrive in England before May 19, the day their second warm-up game, against England Lions, starts.

Sri Lanka Cricket had earlier asked the players to return on May 5 in order to prepare for the England tour but after talks between the BCCI and SLC it was agreed that they can leave IPL by May 18.
