The Sri Lankan selectors finalized on a 15-man squad for the all-important Twenty20 series against South Africa starting 20th of January 2016. The three Twenty20 matches are scheduled to be played at Centurion, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Hard-hitting batsman Kusal Janith Perera’s omission was somewhat a surprise move by the selectors. However, the selectors have picked uncapped all-rounder Thikshila de Silva for the limited over series.
Meanwhile, South Africa surprised the cricketing world by picking a relatively inexperienced side. The 15-man Proteas squad will be led by all-rounder Farhaan Behardien.
