Sri Lanka Finish Series Unchanged
Tillekeratne Dilshan might count himself unlucky not to get a go in the Sri Lankan middle order after the third test Sri Lankan team was made public.
His replacement for the series, first class veteran Silva, has scored mildly, but solidly to retain his spot. Former Sri Lankan captain Marvin Attapattu is still out of the team with a niggling back injury. Attapattu was hopeful to come back into the side for the last test match, but failed a fitness test. He is now hopeful to return for the best of seven one day series to follow the test series.
