Chamara Silva, who was last involved in a Tri-series with India and Zimbabwe in May and June, has been recalled into the squad for the Tri-Series for the Sri Lankan side. Also making a return in the squad is paceman Dilhara Fernando. Allrounder Thisara Perera too has managed to find himself a place in the squad.
Meanwhile, after a rather ordinary performance in the just concluded Test series against India, Chanaka Welegedara has been dropped along with Thilina Kandamby by the Sri Lankan selectors for the upcoming tri-series starting August 10.
Muttiah Muralitharan, who recently called it quits in the longer version of the game, has been rested though he is available for selection for the 2011 ICC World Cup.
Squad: Kumar Sangakkara (capt & wk), Mahela Jayawardene (vc), Chamara Silva, Thisara Perera, Dilhara Fernando, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Angelo Mathews, Thilan Samaraweera, Chamara Kapugedera, Suraj Randiv, Ajantha Mendis, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath.
