While batting against India in the second semifinal yesterday, Dilshan limped off the field after suffering a muscle tear trying to flick the ball on to the leg side.

Sansscans revealed Dilshan had suffered a second degree tear and has been advised four to six weeks of recovery time. Dilshan's replacement is likely to be announced in a day and a player from the Sri Lanka A team, which is currently touring the Caribbean, could be named.
