The day two of ODI series against Bangladesh will be held today.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella has been ruled out of the ongoing series after suffering a hairline fracture in his left hand.

Dickwella had sustained the injury on Sunday, at training.

Though it was originally thought to be a minor injury, he had had trouble gripping his bat on Monday.

Subsequent X-rays then confirmed the fracture.

Team manager Asanka Gurusinha said that while the injury was "minor" it may take "a couple of weeks" to fully heal, which also puts Dickwella in doubt for the T20 internationals that follow the ODIs.
