    Batsmen Upul Tharanga and Dinesh Chandimal, spin duo Seekkuge Prasanna and Suraj Randiv, and fast bowler Dhammika Prasad have been recalled after missing last month's three-match series against South Africa that Sri Lanka lost 2-1.

    The first game of the three-match series is in Hambantota on Saturday, with the second being played in Colombo on Aug. 27.

    Squad: Angelo Mathews (captain), Tillekaratne Dilshan, UpulTharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Ashan Priyanjan, Lahiru Thirimanne, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dhammika Prasad, Rangana Herath, Seekkuge Prasanna, Suraj Randiv, Thisara Perera.
