Opener Dimuth Karunaratne has been named in Sri Lanka's squad to Australia for three Tests, the first of which begins in Hobart on December 14th.

Fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep also finds a place in the squad, but 19-year-old offspinner Tharindu Kaushal, who is with the team for the ongoing home series against New Zealand, has not been named.

Pradeep is the only addition to the squad for the New Zealand Tests, and is one of five quick bowlers in the 16-man party to Australia.

Left-handed Karunaratne,  made a first-innings duck on debut in the Galle Test against New Zealand, but bounced back to score a run-a-ball 60 not out in the second innings to complete Sri Lanka's 10-wicket victory.
