The national cricket selectors yesterday left out speed star Lasith Malinga and named uncapped fast bowler Suranga Lakmal in the sixteen member squad for next week’s opening Test match against the West Indies in Galle.
Malinga has been injury prone since he made a comeback into test cricket during the previous home series against India in July/August this year.
However he was part of the Sri Lankan team that toured Australia for a one day series which concluded recently.
Meanwhile Suranga Lakmal has been able to earn a place in the team following some good performances for the Sri Lanka ’A’ side in the recent past.
