Wicketkeeper-batsman Kusal Perera has been ruled out of the first two ODIs against Bangladesh, after sustaining a hamstring strain during yesterday's warm-up match in Colombo, Sri Lanka's cricket manager Asanka Gurusinha confirmed.

Though there was a chance Kusal could be fit enough to play in the second ODI in Dambulla on March 28, the selectors have chosen to keep Kusal in Colombo while the team travels to Dambulla.

A replacement is expected to be named today or tomorrow, but Kusal will rejoin the squad ahead of the third ODI at the SSC on April 1, provided he recovers as expected.
