Dilshan exit a blow for RCB.

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Daniel Vettori thinks his side will struggle to replace Tillakaratne Dilshan when he is on international duty.
Dilshan, who was the top run-scorer at the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup after amassing 500 runs in nine innings, will exit the side's Indian Premier League campaign to play for Sri Lanka when they tour England through May-June.
The loss of such a star will hurt Vettori's side, but the New Zealand spinner is hopeful some of the younger players in the squad can shine in Dilshan's absence.
"He's a pretty important player for us, he obviously opens the batting," Vettori said.
"He's a very good fielder and more often than not he's going to bowl four overs, so there's not too many people that offer you that and it'll be tough to replace him, but we have to."
"We've got Luke Pomersbach, Rilee Roussow, they're both young batsmen who can bat at the top of the order."
"But they don't quite offer the bowling option that Dilshan does and obviously the experience that Dilshan has and how good a performer he is."
The Challengers take on the Deccan Chargers on Thursday, hoping to avenge a defeat to Mumbai.
