David Warner and Mitch Marsh are among the omissions in Australia’s 16-man squad for a Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka in February, while coach Justin Langer will also be absent.

Australia is hosting Sri Lanka in a five-match T20 series, with the games to be spread across the Sydney Cricket Ground, Manuka Oval in Canberra and the Melbourne Cricket Ground from February 11-20.

Langer is among the members of support staff set to be on vacation during the T20 series and ahead of a three-test series in Pakistan starting March 3.

Andrew McDonald will serve as head coach in Langer’s absence, as was the case during last year’s T20 tour of New Zealand.
