Yuvraj Singh has dengue fever and will miss India's one-day international against Sri Lanka on Monday, team captain Mahendra Dhoni has announced.

The mosquito-borne disease has already killed more than 170 people in Sri Lanka this year, but India captain Dhoni said Yuvraj is "out of danger".

The 28-year-old has played 34 Tests for India with a batting average of 35.63.

Dhoni also said seam bowler Ashish Nehra is doubtful for the match in Dambulla because of an injury.
