Sri Lanka have called up uncapped paceman Dammika Prasad as an additional bowling option for the second Test against India in Galle starting on Thursday.
The 25-year-old, who troubled Indians in the warm-up last week, played three one-day internationals in 2006 before injured cut short his stint. He has had a impressive season with the A team.
Dammika, may likely to get selectors nod ahead of the old horse Chaminda Vaas-who is likely to be rested in Galle.The hosts, riding on the fine act from spin twin Murali and Mendis, won the first Test by an innings and 239 runs.
Squad: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Michael Vandort, Malinda Warnapura, Kumar Sangakkara, Thilan Samaraweera, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Prasanna Jayawardene, Chaminda Vaas, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Nuwan Kulasekera, Chamara Silva, Thilan Thushara, Chamara Kapugedera and Dammika Prasad.
