Sri Lanka on Tuesday selected uncapped Milinda Siriwardana and Sachith Pathirana in a 15-man squad for the ODI series against Pakistan starting on July 11.

Both players are all-rounders who bowl left-arm spin, leaving no room for veteran spinner Rangana Herath in the squad to be led by Angelo Mathews.

The five-match series opens in Dambulla, with other games to be played in Pallekele (July 15), Colombo (July 19, 22) and Hambantota (July 26).
