Sri Lanka announce squad for Afghanistan series

Colombo, May 30 (UNI) Sri Lanka are set to ramp up their Cricket World Cup Qualifier preparation with a three-match ODI series at home against Afghanistan.
Up-and-coming pacer Matheesha Pathirana could make his ODI debut after an impressive title-winning IPL season as he was included in the 16-member squad for the first two ODIs of the Afghanistan series.
Nicknamed 'Baby Malinga' for their similar round-arm action, Pathirana is capped in T20Is for Sri Lanka but is yet to feature in the longer formats. The returning Dushmantha Chameera, who is back after a long injury layoff, will lead the pace attack.
