Sri Lanka announces ODI squad after sports minister's ratification

Thisara Perera Anamul Haque Sri Lanka Bangladesh

Perera, who takes over the reins from Upul Tharanga, will be without the experienced right-hander, who has made a century and two fifties so far in the Test series in India.

As a result, Thisara became the seventh player to captain Sri Lanka in 2017, following Mathews, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath, Dinesh Chandimal and Chamara Kapugedera who all have borne the responsibility in one format or the other. Earlier in a dramatic action, Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera ordered all nine players boarding to India last night to disembark the plane as they were leaving the country without his approval. Neither did Kusal Mendis, who was rested for the Test series.

Kusal Perera, who has not played worldwide cricket since injuring himself in the Champions Trophy, is back in the Sri Lankan ODI squad for the three-match series against India starting December 10.
