Sri Lanka tour squad named

Sri Lanka have named a 25-man squad for their summer tour of England and Ireland.

The tourists play two one-day internationals against Ireland at Clontarf in early May before heading to England, where they play 50-over warm-up watches with Essex and Kent and a Twenty 20 match against Sussex.

Sri Lanka then tackle England in a floodlit T20 international at the Kia Oval, five ODIs around the country, and two Tests - at Lord's and Headingley - before the end of the trip in late June.

All bases are covered in a single extended group named by Sri Lanka Cricket as opposed to distinct Test and limited-overs parties.

Not all players will be available across the formats, with Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara retiring from the shortest form of the game at the end of the ongoing World Twenty20 in Bangladesh and Tillakaratne Dilshan having already called time on his Test career.

Sri Lanka squad for tour of England and Ireland: K Perera, K Silva, D Karunaratne, L Thirimanne, T Dilshan, K Sangakkara, M Jayawardene, A Mathews, D Chandimal, P Jayawardene, A Priyanjan, K Vithanage, C De Silva, S Prasanna, D Perera, R Herath, S Senanayake, A Mendis, T Perera, N Kulasekara, L Malinga, S Lakmal, D Prasad, S Eranga, V Fernando.
