Sri Lanka has announced a tried-and-tested squad for next month's World T20 in Bangladesh.

The only selection resembling something of a surprise was the inclusion of batting allrounder Chaturanga de Silva as a standby in case Rangana Herath doesn't recover in time for the tournament.

Chaturanga also features in Sri Lanka's Asia Cup squad, though as a confirmed member and not a back-up. The 15-man squad for the 50-over Asia Cup had only one change from the World T20 side, batsman Ashan Priyanjan taking the place of spinner Seekkuge Prasanna.

Mahela Jayawardene, who picked up a finger injury last week was selected in both squads.
