With the inclusion of a few new faces to the longer format, Sri Lanka cricket lately announced the official 17-man Test squad for the upcoming Test series against England.
While Dasun Shanaka and Dhanankaya De Silva found themselves in the squad, Lahiru Thirimanne was surprisingly recalled, regardless of his poor form with the bat.
Credit to his complete recovery, Sri Lankan opener Kaushal Silva has found a place in the 17 man squad as well.
However, leg Spinner Jeffrey Vandersay was left out in place of the experienced Dilruwan Perera.
Sri Lankan Squad : Angelo Matthews (C), Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Dhammika Prasad, Dilruwan Perera, Dimuth Karunaratne, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Dushmantha Chameera, Kaushal Silva, Kusal Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Milinda Siriwardana, Niroshan Dickwella, Nuwan Pradeep, Rangana Herath, Shaminda Eranga, Suranga Lakmal.
