Four Uncapped Players In Sri Lanka Provisional Squad
Sri Lanka have named their 30-man provisional squad for the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 which takes place in England and Wales in June.
Shehan Jayasuriya, Ishan Jayaratne, Angelo Perera and Milinda Siriwardene are the four uncapped players in the squad while a number of experienced players have earned recalls.
Fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige last played a One-Day Intenational in 2005, leg-spinner Malinga Bandara hasn't featured since 2010 and all-rounder Farveez Maharoof is also back in the squad.
Of the four uncapped players, Perera is the only one to have had any exposure to international cricket, making his Twenty20 International debut against Bangladesh late last month.
Sri Lanka play New Zealand on 9th June, England on 13th June and Australia on 17th June in their group fixtures.
