Colombo: Sri Lanka on Saturday included paceman Dilhara Fernando and middle-order batsman Chamara Silva in their 15-man squad for the ODI tri-series against India and New Zealand beginning next week in Dambulla.

Fernando played in the second Test of the just-concluded Test series but made way for Lasith Malinga in the third Test, which India won by five wickets.
