Injured Fernando out of one-day series

ESPNcricinfo staff

Dilhara Fernando, the Sri Lanka fast bowler, has been ruled out of the limited-overs series against England due to an injury he sustained during the third Test at the Rose Bowl. Fernando, who played two Tests on the tour and will be returning to Sri Lanka, has been replaced by seamer Dhammika Prasad.

Prasad, 28, last played an international game in November last year and hasn't played an ODI since August 2009. He's been on the fringes of the national side since he made his debut in February 2006, but will now be part of a pace attack that also includes Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Suranga Lakmal, Angelo Matthews and Thissara Perera. The limited-overs' games include a Twenty20 international, starting on June 25, followed by five ODIs.
