Sri Lanka have banked largely on experience in naming their 15-man squad for the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 by recalling Chanaka Welagedara.

There were four uncapped players in their provisional squad but none have made it through to the final squad, which will be led by Angelo Mathews.

Welagedara last played a One-Day International in 2010 during the Asia Cup.

Sri Lanka play New Zealand on 9th June, England four days later before finishing their group campaign against Australia on 17th June.

Sri Lanka ICC Champions Trophy squad: Angelo Mathews (captain), Dinesh Chandimal (vice-captain), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kushal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara, Shaminda Eranga, Sachithra Senanayake, Chanaka Welagedara
