Sri Lanka have named an unchanged squad to face India in the first three of five One Day Internationals later this month.

The selectors opted against changing the set of players which beat Pakistan 2-1 in Pakistan, crushing their hosts by 234 runs in the final match in Lahore.

Tillakaratne Dilshan, who was dropped for tours to Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, retains his place after a stunning run of form which culminated in an unbeaten 137 in Karachi.

Muttiah Muralitharan needs just three wickets to become the all-time leading wicket-taker in ODIs, having picked up his 500th scalp in Lahore.

Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Kumar Sangakkara, Sanath Jayasuriya, Upul Tharanga, Chamara Kapugedera, Jehan Mubarak, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Thilina Kandamby, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Farveez Maharoof, Dilhara Fernando, Nuwan Kulasekera, Thilan Thushara, Angelo Mathews

Chamara Silva, Malinga Bandara, Mahela Udawatte and Chanake Welagedara were named as stand by players.
