Match-winner Nuwan Pradeep dislocates finger - out of Bangladesh match

Sri Lankan pacer Nuwan Pradeep (C) walks off the field for medical treatment after he got injured during a training session at Bristol County Ground in Bristol on Sunday.

An injury to Pradeep will be a serious blow to Sri Lanka's World Cup hopes, with the fast bowler having bowled the decisive spell in Sri Lanka's only victory of the tournament so far, against Afghanistan.

Sri Lanka have won one game, lost one and their last game against Pakistan was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.

Batsman Kusal Perera was in the nets when Pradeep's delivery send the ball flying towards the bowler's face.

Pradeep injured his finger on his bowling hand but is likely to be fit within a week, according to ICC. Nuwan Pradeep. Image Courtesy: Getty " Thankfully his small finger has not fractured, it's only a dislocation. He was taken to the hospital immediately after dislocating the finger.

Sri Lanka faced a massive 10-wicket defeat against New Zealand in their first match but made a solid comeback and overpowered Afghanistan by 34 runs.

Pradeep has been injury-prone in general, and has often been ruled out for months on account of hamstring complaints, but this being an external blow will particularly frustrate him, especially as it has come at a time when he was in good bowling rhythm.

Kasun Rajitha, who has been training with the team in the United Kingdom as a standby option, would likely replace Pradeep should he be forced to withdraw from the squad completely.

If both the players have to sit out on Tuesday, it will be tough for Sri Lanka to beat Bangladesh as they are constantly trying their best to bounce back strongly.
