Sri Lanka unveil tour squad

Sri Lanka have named a 25-man squad for their summer tour of England and Ireland.

The tourists play two one-day internationals against the Irish at Clontarf in early May before five ODIs, one Twenty20 match and two Tests against England, ending the trip in late June.

Sri Lanka have named one large squad rather than distinct Test and limited overs squads.

Not all players will be available across the formats, with Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara retiring from the shortest format at the end of the ongoing World Twenty20 and Tillakaratne Dilshan having already called time on his Test career.

Squad: K Perera, K Silva, D Karunaratne, L Thirimanne, T Dilshan, K Sangakkara, M Jayawardene, A Mathews, D Chandimal, P Jayawardene, A Priyanjan, K Vithanage, C De Silva, S Prasanna, D Perera, R Herath, S Senanayake, A Mendis, T Perera, N Kulasekara, L Malinga, S Lakmal, D Prasad, S Eranga, V Fernando.
