Batsman Kusal Janith Perera, who was named in the 15 member squad to take part in the upcoming T20 games against Bangladesh, has been ruled out of the two games in the shortest format following medical advice.

According to medical advice, Perera needs more time to recover from the side strain which he suffered during the 2nd match Sri Lanka played against Zimbabwe in the concluded ODI Tri-Series in Bangladesh.

Kusal did not leave with the other T20 players who have already left to Bangladesh. Kusal Mendis will replace him.

Shakib out

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of the first Twenty20 international against Sri Lanka after he failed to recover from a finger injury, an official said Tuesday.

Shakib replaced pace bowler Mashrafe Mortaza as Bangladesh's T20 skipper in the series against South Africa in October.
