Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews has returned from a calf injury for Tuesday's second and final Test against England but he cannot bowl.

The 24-year-old missed the 75-run victory in the first game of the series but is now fit enough to replace Chamara Silva in the 14-man squad.

Selectors also said pacer Chanaka Welegedara has been ruled out with an injury with Shaminda Eranga called up instead.

Mathews will compete for the number six batting spot with Dinesh Chandimal, who scored 27 and 31 in the Galle Test.

Even though 25-year-old right-arm fast bowler Eranga has made the list for the game in Colombo Dhammika Prasad is most likely to share the new ball with Suranga Lakmal.
