Uncapped Angelo Mathews Picked For Sri Lanka
Mathews, 21, has been rewarded for a series of strong performances for Sri Lanka A and will compete for a place in the middle order after the selectors omitted Tillakaratne Dilshan and Chamara Silva.
Veteran Sanath Jayasuriya has been rested with Upul Tharanga earning a recall and he will open the batting alongside Mahela Udawatte.
Dammika Prasad replaces Chaminda Vaas, who asked to be rested ahead of a busy 2009 schedule while wicket-keeper Kumar Sangakkara returns to the squad after a finger injury.
The five-match series begins on November 10th.
Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Kumar Sangakkara (wicket-keeper), Upul Tharanga, Mahela Udawatte, Chamara Kapugedera, Jehan Mubarak, Thilina Kandamby, Angelo Mathews, Farveez Maharoof, Thilan Thushara, Dammika Prasad, Dilhara Fernando, Nuwan Kulasekera, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis
