Sri Lanka have named an unchanged squad for the third and final One-Day International against Bangladesh after the second game in Hambantota was rained off.

They won the opening match by eight wickets and the two teams will meet in the final match in Colombo tomorrow (27th March).

Sri Lanka have also named a 16-man squad for the one-off Twenty20 International on Sunday (31st March).

Dinesh Chandimal is set to captain the side for the first time since taking on the role with Lasith Malinga as his vice-captain.

Sri Lanka are using the opportunity to build for the future, naming six uncapped players in the squad including four who weren't picked for the ODIs in Chathuranga de Silva, Shehan Jayasuriya, Ramith Rambukwella and Ishan Jayaratne.

De Silva has yet to play a full Twenty20 match, off-spinners Jayasuriya and Rambukwella are both former Sri Lanka Under-19s cricketers with eight and 10 matches behind them respectively while fast-medium bowler Jayaratne has played just three games.

Angelo Perera and Kithuruwan Vithanaga are also included in the squad and although they are in the ODI squad, they are also yet to make their Twenty20 International debut.

Sri Lanka ODI squad: Angelo Mathews (captain), Dinesh Chandimal (vice-captain), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusha Perera, Kumar Sangakkara, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeewan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Sachithra Senanayake, Upul Tharanga, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Angelo Perera, Shaminda Eranga, Sachith Pathirana
