Sri Lanka name 15-man squad for India ODIs

If Sangakkara is declared unfit, Niroshan Dickwella expected to make his ODI debut; Herath rested.

Sri Lanka on Wednesday named their 15-member squad for the five-match ODI series against India with notable omissions being former T20 captain Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne.

However a half-fit Kumar Sangakkara is there in the touring party. If Sangakkara is declared unfit, Niroshan Dickwella is expected to make his ODI debut.

Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath has been rested while off spinner Suraj Randiv has been recalled.

The spinners in the squad are Randiv, leg-spinner Seekkuge Prasanna and left-arm orthodox Chaturanga de Silva.

Medium pacer Lahiru Gamage earned his maiden call-up as he will share the new ball with the seasoned Nuwan Kulasekera and Dhammika Prasad.
