Dilshan to leave IPL next week

Colombo: Sri Lanka’s newly-appointed cricket captain Tillakaratne Dilshan will leave his IPL side Royal Challengers Bangalore next week to be available for the national team’s first tour game in England. Dilshan will join the national squad on May 11, three days before the opening tour match against Middlesex. The arrangement was worked out after negotiations between the BCCI and Sri Lanka Cricket.

“He will be there on May 11,” SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga was quoted as saying by ‘Cricinfo.’ — PTI
