Sri Lanka include Sangakkara, uncapped Gamage in ODI squad for India

Colombo: Sri Lanka on Wednesday named their 15-member squad for the first three ODIs of the five-match series against India with notable omissions being former T20 captain Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne.

However, a half-fit Kumar Sangakkara is there in the touring party. If Sangakkara is declared unfit, Niroshan Dickwella is expected to make his ODI debut.

Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath has been rested while off spinner Suraj Randiv has been recalled.

The spinners in the squad are Randiv, leg-spinner Seekkuge Prasanna and left-arm orthodox Chaturanga de Silva.

Medium pacer Lahiru Gamage earned his maiden call-up as he will share the new ball with the seasoned Nuwan Kulasekera and Dhammika Prasad.

Squad: Angelo Mathews (Captain), Kusal Perera, Tillekaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Ashan Priyanjan, Niroshan Dickwella, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekera, Dhammika Prasad, Lahiru Gamage, Chaturanga de Silva, Seekkuge Prasanna and Suraj Randiv.
