Jayasuriya gets the call upJames Nixon |
Sanath Jayasuriya has been named in the fourteen man squad for the first Test against South Africa starting in Colombo on Thursday.
With no Sri Lankan A players managing to impress in their tour match against South Africa, the selectors decided to stick with experience with no surprises in the players been named.
The only injury concern within the squad is left-arm spinner Rangana Herath with Sajeewa Weerakoon being placed on stand-by should Herath not recover in time.
