Dammika Prasad will replace injured fast bowler Nuwan Kulasekara for the remainder of Sri Lanka's tour of Bangladesh.

Kulasekara will miss the final two One-Day Internationals after going down injured in the opening game, which Sri Lanka won by 13 runs.

Kulasekara, a veteran of 147 ODIs, was dismissed for a duck and then bowled six overs as Sri Lanka recovered from being 67 for eight to go 1-0 up in the three-match series.

His replacement Prasad, also a fast bowler, has played 12 ODIs, during which he has taken 18 wickets and a best of three for 17.

He last played ODI cricket in 2012 during Sri Lanka's tour of Australia.

The second game takes place tomorrow (20th February).
