Sri Lanka announce their 18-man T20I squad for the India series

After demolishing the West Indies on their home turf, team India will be looking to do the same to the Sri Lanka team. However, it is definitely not going to be easy as it would have been a couple of years back. After the likes of Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardena, Dilshan and other top-notch cricketers retired from their national side, the team suffered quite a bit but are finally back on track.

It is true that the Lankans lost 4-1 to Australia in the recently concluded series but in the Indian subcontinent, things can be very different. Players like Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmanta Chameera, Charith Asalanka, Maheesh Theekshana and others are showing a lot of potential and they might help Sri Lanka gain the prestige that they lost towards the end of the last decade.

There was a time when only Lasith Malinga used to represent in the Indian T20 League but this year, so many others got the opportunity to represent different franchises. This shows that Sri Lankan cricket is going in the right direction and to play in India against the Indians before the Indian T20 League will be a blessing to them. As the T20 World Series is soon approaching, the Lankans will have a great opportunity to display a solid performance against the number one T20I side in the world.

Squad – Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Kamil Mishara, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Janith Liyanage, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmanta Chameera, Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara, Binura Fernando, Shiran Fernando, Maheesh Theekshana, Praveen Jayswickrama, Jeffrey Vandersay, Ashian Daniel.
