Former Sri Lanka Captain Angelo Mathews has fully recovered from an injury & was named in a 22 player squad to face England in two tests in Galle. However the injured pair of batsman Dhananjaya de Silva and pace bowler Kasun Rajitha will miss the series which will start on Thursday, after being part of the 2-0 Test series defeat in South Africa this month.
Mathews had not travelled to South Africa after suffering a hamstring injury but he is expected to be included in the squad against England in matches that count towards the inaugural World Test Championship. The Sri-Lanka team will resume a series that was halted in March after England flew back to country because of coronavirus. Both the matches will be played in Galle behind closed doors.
Sri Lanka squad: Dimuth Karunaratne (capt), Kusal Janith Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Oshada Fernando, Niroshan Dickwella, Minod Bhanuka, Lahiru Thirimanne, Lasith Embuldeniya, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara, Vishwa Fernando, Dushmantha Chameera, Dasun Shanaka, Asitha Fernando, Roshen Silva, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep, Ramesh Mendis.
