Lahiru Thirimanne has been called in to Sri Lanka's One-Day International squad as a replacement for Tillakaratne Dilshan, who has suffered a hand injury.

Dilshan will miss tomorrow's third and final ODI in Bangladesh while Kumar Sangakkara, whose century set up a comprehensive win in the second match, will be rested.

Sri Lanka lead the series 2-0 after victories by 13 and 61 runs respectively in the first two games.

Thirimanne has played 56 ODIs since making his debut against India in Bangladesh in 2010.
