Dhananjaya de Silva will be flown in to Dhaka on Tuesday (January 23) as a replacement for Kusal Perera, who suffered a side strain during Sri Lanka's Sunday clash against Zimbabwe. While Perera is out of the ongoing ODI tri-series - involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, his availability for the upcoming Test series is still not confirmed.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is yet to decide if Perera will continue to stay with the team, and a decision on the same is expected to be taken on Tuesday morning. He sustained the injury while compiling a 49 against Zimbabwe, as Sri Lanka went on to secure their first win of the tournament. This comes on the back of Angelo Mathews's unavailability, who was ruled out of the remaining tour owing to a recurring a hamstring injury.

Dhananjaya has played 17 ODIs, 7 T20Is and 11 Tests. While his last ODI was against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy, he was the chief architect in securing a draw against India in the Delhi Test, thanks to his stodgy 119.

Sri Lanka will next play Bangladesh on Thursday, two days after which the final of the triseries will be held. Four days after the final, Bangladesh will play two Tests against Sri Lanka, starting on January 31, followed by two T20Is.
