Tillakaratne Dilshan has suffered a minor ankle sprain but Sri Lanka are confident of his availability for the first Test. The Lankans take on India in the first Test, starting at Ahmedabad on November 16.
"It's a minor ankle sprain. He batted in the indoor nets for some time. He should be okay in a couple of days. As of now the reports are very positive. He has to see how it feels while practicing on the field. Hopefully he should be fit for the first Test," visiting team manger Brendon Kuruppu told reporters at the MCA's Recreation Centre in Bandra-Kurla Complex.
"He's okay and there's no need to panic. We will assess the injury at the ground. He suffered the injury while playing a warm-up game at the MCA's indoor stadium with his teammates," Kuruppu said.
