India vs Sri Lanka 2017: Sri Lanka announce squad for ODI series

Dinesh Chandimal

The islanders are now involved in a three-Test rubber against India.

Test skipper Dinesh Chandimal, who has been in fine form during the three-match Test series, did not get a place in the ODI team led by Thisara Perera.

Perera was named Sri Lanka captain for India ODIs. However, the contest is marred by air pollution issues as the visitors wore masks while playing.

All sporting teams chosen to represent Sri Lanka need the approval of minister of sports according to Sri Lanka's sports law.

Thisara Perera will lead a 16-member Sri Lankan side against India in three One-Day Internationals starting on December 10.

Perera, who takes over the reins from Upul Tharanga, will be without the experienced right-hander, who has made a century and two fifties so far in the Test series in India. Neither did Kusal Mendis, who was rested for the Test series.

Squad: Thisara Perera (captain), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Asela Gunaratne, Niroshan Dickwella (wicketkeeper), Chaturanga de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dhananjaya De Silva, Dushmantha Chameera, Sachith Pathirana, Kusal Perera.

They have already lost one Test and are on the brink of losing the third Test too.

However, after reaching the airport, the team had to return, as the team was not granted approval by the Ministry of Sports. As per the early reports, the Sri Lankan team was called back from the airport as the Sri Lanka Cricket board CEO and secretary haven't approved the team for limited overs series yet.
