Dilhara Fernando, the Sri Lanka fast bowler, has been ruled out of the remainder of the series against Pakistan after sustaining an arm injury.

Sri Lanka manager Brendon Kuruppu said Fernando injured his right arm while fielding in the third one-dayer against Pakistan in Dambulla and will be out for at least two weeks.

"Clinical tests and MRF scans confirmed a grade-two tear on his right teres major muscle in the posterior part of his right shoulder," Kuruppu said. "Dilhara's recovery will be monitored by the team management."

Fernando, who didn't play in the fourth ODI, has been replaced by another fast bowler Dammika Prasad in the one-day squad.
