20man squad for Test and ODI in the next 12 to 18 months

“What Sanath (Jayasuriya) and I are working with the rest of the selectors is to have a 20-member group we have identified for Test and ODIs and try to work with that 20 for the next 12 to 18 months. We have a program of shadow cricketers as well so we know if someone is injured whom we can bring in." said Gurusinha.
