Sri Lanka Name Squad To Tour England
Sri Lanka have named a 16-man squad for the tour of England, which gets underway in May, leaving out senior fast bowler Lasith Malinga.
Malinga is absent ahead of the tour which comprises a Twenty20 International, five One-Day Internationals and three Test matches with Tillakaratne Dilshan leading the side in all three series.
Also missing alongside Malinga is all-rounder Angelo Mathews who is tipped by many to be the next vice-captain. He misses the tour due to injury.
Sri Lanka squad to tour England: Tillakaratne Dilshan (captain), Tharanga Paranavitana, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Thilan Samaraweera, Dinesh Chandimal, Prasanna Jayawardene, Tissara Perera, Suraj Randiv, Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath, Dilhara Fernando, Chanaka Welagedara, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep
