Sri Lanka have announced their 16-men squad for the 3 test-match series against India, which gets underway on August 12 at Galle.
Uncapped 23-year-old seamer Vishwa Fernando has been included in the squad, while Shaminda Eranga and Suranga Lakmal ruled out due to injury.
Fernando has played 31 first-class matches with 98 wickets at an average of 31.
He impressed the selectors during the ongoing warm-up game where he dismissed India’s Rohit Sharma and Wriddhimann Saha in the second innings.
The home series will be Kumar Sangakkara’s final assignment as he already confirmed that he will quit international cricket after the 2nd Test at Colombo.
