Borneo 7s squad members Omalka Gunarathne, Reeza Raffaideen and Kavindu Perera will miss this tournament with injuries. In their places, Sri Lanka will have the services of the experienced Fazil Marija, Anurudda Wilwara and Anuradha Herath.
Initially, a twenty-two member pool was announced but it has been trimmed down to the best twelve.
