Kaushal gets Test call
Sri Lanka have named highly-rated Tharindu Kaushal, a 19-year old off-spinner with no senior experience, in their squad for the two Tests versus New Zealand.
Kaushal, who has been included mainly to gain experience of the international set-up, is unlikely to play in the first game at Galle but may be considered for the second match at Colombo.
He has also been retained in an unchanged party for the last two one-day internationals with the Black Caps, both at Hambantota, tomorrow and on Monday. The hosts lead the series 2-0.
Opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan is set to miss the remaining ODIs due to a strained back, but remains part of the squad.
Seamers Chanaka Welegedara, Dhammika Prasad and Shaminda Eranga return to the Test party, replacing Thisara Perera, Nuwan Pradeep and Dilhara Fernando.
Test squad: Mahela Jayawardene (capt), Angelo Mathews (vc), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Tharanga Paranavitana, Kumar Sangakkara, Thilan Samaraweera, Prasanna Jayawardene (wk), Tharindu Kaushal, Suraj Randiv, Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dinesh Chandimal, Chanaka Welagedara, Shaminda Eranga, Dhammika Prasad.
Squad for remaining ODIs: Mahela Jayawardene (capt), Angelo Mathews (vc), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Shaminda Eranga, Upul Tharanga, Rangana Herath, Akila Dananjaya, Tharindu Kaushal.
