Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Nuwan Kulasekara all returned to Sri Lanka’s T20 squad for the Asia Cup and the subsequent World T20. Twenty20 captain Lasith Malinga, vice-captain Angelo Mathews and seamer Nuwan Kulasekara are back from injury for Sri Lanka, for the Asia Cup and the World T20. All three players were included in the identical 15-man squads named for both tournaments. Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath, who had missed Sri Lanka’s three-match T20 series in India, also made a return.
This is good new for all Sri Lanka fans. Three legend came back for the team Sri Lanka for world T20. Sri Lanka begin their Asia Cup defence in Mirpur on February 25, and their World T20 campaign starts in Kolkata, on March 17.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella has also been named, while the likes of Lahiru Thirimanne and Danushka Gunathilaka missed out. Legspinner Jeffrey Vandersay, offspinning allrounder Shehan Jayasuriya, and seam-bowling allrounder Dasun Shanaka find places in the squads, but Seekkuge Prasanna and Kasun Rajitha – who played in the recent T20 series in India – have been overlooked
