Three senior team discards - allrounder Farveez Maharoof, fast bowler Isuru Udana and opening batsman Mahela Udawatte - have won a place in the Sri Lanka A team’s one-month tour of Australia from June 10.
All three players have been picked for the one-day squad which will play three matches against Australia A. Maharoof has been out of the senior national team since playing an ODI against India in February 2009, while Udana’s only international appearance was in the second edition of the World Twenty20 in England. Udawatte had a brief run with the limited-overs side, but has been out of favour since September. Middle-order batsman Chamara Kapugedera will captain the one-day side.
