Sri Lanka have named their 15-man squad for the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa.
There are two surprises in the squad with leg-spinner Kaushal Lokuarachchchi and all-rounder Gayan Wijekoon being included due to their impressive performances during Sri Lanka A's current tour of England.
With Marvan Atapattu and Russel Arnold having recently retired, all-rounder Hasantha Fernando and batsman Jehan Mubarak take their places.
