In the absence of Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal, the Sri Lankan selectors have opted to use the experience of Upul Tharanga for the upcoming tri-series involving Zimbabwe and the West Indies.
Tharanga will lead the team under Kusal Perera’s assistance.
Regardless of the positives, the selectors were keen on resting Mathews and Chandimal for the South African tour to follow.
However, spinner Jeffrey Vandersay and Nuwan Pradeep will fill in after a prolonged phase of recovery.
The Sri Lankan Squad
Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, Upul Tharanga (capt), Kusal Mendis, Shehan Jayasuriya, Asela Gunaratne, Sachith Pathirana, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dasun Shanaka, Nuwan Pradeep, Lahiru Kumara, Suranga Lakmal, Lakshan Sandakan, Jeffery Vandersay.
The tri-series is set to commence on the 14th of November 2016.
