Lahiru Gamage picked to tour India
Sri Lanka has left out the vice-captain in their previous ODI series against Pakistan in August Lahiru Thirimanne from their squad for the first 3 games of the 5 ODI series in India in November.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Chandimal, spinner Rangana Herath, and the injured fast bowler Lasith Malinga were the others omitted.
Uncapped fast bowler Lahiru Gamage, wicketkeeper-batsmen Kusal Perera and Niroshan Dickwella, and left-arm all-rounder Chaturanga de Silva were their replacements.
Sri Lanka is touring India to fill the void left by West Indies pulling out of their tour because of a payments-structure dispute with WICB and West Indies Players' Association.
