Sri Lanka recall for Randiv

Sri Lanka have brought spinner Suraj Randiv back into the international fold for the forthcoming one-day series against Pakistan, nearly three years since his last ODI appearance.

The 29-year-old has been named as part of a 15-man squad for the three-match series, which gets under way on August 23 in Hambantota.

Randiv, who has taken 33 ODI wickets at an average of 30.54, will help replace Sachithra Senanayake, who is working to remodel his action after being banned from international cricket.

All-rounder Thisara Perera and fast bowler Dhammika Prasad, who missed the recent series against South Africa, were also included.

Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardena, Dinesh Chandimal, Ashan Priyanjan, Lahiru Thirimanne, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dhammika Prasad, Rangana Herath, Seekuge Prasanna, Suraj Randiv, Thisara Perera
