Law expects Dilshan to be back for ODIs

LONDON: Sri Lanka interim coach Stuart Law is optimistic captain Tillakaratne Dilshan will be fit for next week's first three one-day internationals against England.

Opening batsman Dilshan missed the drawn third Test against England at the Rose Bowl, a result that gave the host the series 1-0 after suffering a broken thumb making 193 — the highest Test score by a Sri Lankan at Lord's — in the second match of the campaign.

Dilshan also sat out of Sri Lanka's one-day match against Worcestershire at New Road on Wednesday.

Former Australia batsman Law reckons Saturday's lone Twenty20 international against England at Bristol may come too soon for Dilshan but he was upbeat about his skipper being fit in time for the first of a five-match one-day series at The Oval on Tuesday.

“Maybe the Twenty20 international will be too soon,” Law said.

“But I would expect him (Dilshan) to feature in the one-day series.

“He is not 100 per cent yet but he is getting there.” — AFP
