Sri Lanka select Pradeep among pacemen
Sri Lanka have selected five pacemen for their three-Test series in Australia.
Nuwan Pradeep is the only addition to the squad selected for the current series against New Zealand on home soil, with off-spinner Tharindu Kaushal dropping out.
Pradeep is included alongside the four seamers - Shaminda Eranga, Chanaka Welegedara, Dhammika Prasad and Nuwan Kulasekara - who are in the party for the Black Caps rubber.
Rangana Herath and Suraj Randiv will provide the spin options for Mahela Jayawardene's side, while opener Dimuth Karunaratne retains his spot having struck an unbeaten half-century on debut as New Zealand were brushed aside in Galle.
