Malinga and Mathews return for Sri Lanka

Skipper Lasith Malinga and vice-captain Angelo Mathews have been named in Sri Lanka’s World Twenty20 squad after overcoming injury.

Malinga, who has not played since last November against West Indies, captained Sri Lanka to their first World T20 title in 2014. 

The defending champions also welcome back Nuwan Kulasekara and Rangana Herath, both having missed their recent three-match T20 series defeat against India.

Right-arm seamer Kasun Rajitha, who starred against India, misses out on selection.

Sri Lanka squad: Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Niroshan Dickwella, Shelan Jayasuriya, Milinda Siriwardena, Dasun Shanaka, Chamara Kapugedara, Nuwan Kulasekera, Dushmantha Chameera, Thisara Perera, Sachithra Senanayake, Rangana Herath, Jeffrey Vandersay.
