Dilshan breaks his nose

Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan has suffered a fracture on his nose while playing football.

But his team manager says he will be available for the second Test match, starting on Tuesday.

Dilshan collided with one of his teammates while playing football after the first Test in Ahmedabad on Friday and he was immediately rushed to a hospital for an X-ray examination.

Brendon Kuruppu, the Sri Lanka's team manager, though said there was no need to worry as the injury was not serious.

"The injury was put right by the surgeon before we left for Kanpur and Dilshan is out of danger," Kuruppu said.

"He is not in any kind of great discomfort. He will resume practice with the rest of the team tomorrow," he said.

Prior to the first Test, Dilshan sprained his ankle during practice but recovered in time to score a century.

Teams arrive in Kanpur

India and Sri Lanka arrived in Kanpur for the second Test match, beginning on Tuesday at Green Park Stadium.

However, the Indian trio of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir did not arrive with the Indian team as they have gone to Delhi and will reach on Sunday.
The teams landed in the city in the afternoon and amidst a tight security were taken to a city hotel.

Indian run-machine Sachin Tendulkar was presented a memento for completing 20 glorious years in international cricket.
