Chandimal recalled in Sri Lanka’s 16-man squad for Pakistan Tests

With all the players available for selection unlike in the ODI and T20I series where ten of them pulled out on grounds of security concerns, Sri Lanka have named an experienced and strong 16-member squad to take on Pakistan in the two-Test series which will be part of the ICC Test Championship.

The Tests are scheduled to be played at Rawalpindi (December 11-15) and Karachi (December 19-23).

All 16 players picked have appeared in no less than two Tests. The least experienced of them Oshada Fernando with two Test appearances will become skipper Dimuth Karunaratne’s new Test opening partner during the series.

  1. Glad to see both Oshada and Chandi back as both belong there. Not sure why Thiri is in and I presume he will play ahead of Oshada and waste another year of two. I really don’t understand why we keep going back to Thiri – its like our fascination with Tharanga and we all know what yielded with that investment. When a bloke gets that many opportunities and still can’t make an impact, its time to look for alternative options.
