Uncapped opener Udara Jayasundera and rookie legspinner Jeffrey Vandersay have been selected in Sri Lanka's Test squad for the tour of New Zealand.

The 15-man squad, which features 3 spinners, 4 quicks and eight batsmen, has no room for opener Kaushal Silva and offspinner Tharindu Kaushal.

Batsman Lahiru Thirimanne was also dropped from the squad altogether, after being left out of Sri Lanka's most recent Test, against West Indies.

Kusal Mendis, the 20-year old wicketkeeper-batsman who took Thirimanne's place in Colombo, was included again.

Kithuruwan Vithanage also made a return to the Test squad, following good outings with Sri Lanka A in New Zealand last month.
