Kulasekara will return to Sri Lanka today

Sri Lanka pace bowler Nuwan Kulasekara has been ruled out for the remainder of the Bangladesh tour and upcoming Asia Cup after sustaining to a groin injury.

Kulasekara, who will return to Sri Lanka today, is expected to be replaced by Dhammika Prasad, who is scheduled to join the national team tomorrow.

Prasad has represented Sri Lanka in 12 ODIs, the last of which came all the way back in March 2012.

However, he has been in solid form as of late as he picked up six wickets and scored a half-century in a Test match against the England Lions in Pallekele just a few days ago.
