Jul 24, 2010 1:48:55 AM - srilankacricket.lk

Mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis and Fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep Fernando have been included in the 16 man squad named to take on India in the 2nd Test match scheduled to begin at SSC Grounds in Colombo on Monday.

Ajantha Mendis replaces Muttiah Muralidaran who retired from Test Cricket last Thursday. Nuwan Pradeep, who is rated as one of the fastest bowlers in the country is drafted in as cover for injured Lasith Malinga. Another remarkable move made by the selectors have been the appointment of Mahela Jayawardena to the position of Vice Captaincy, which was left vacant by the retirement of Muralidaran.
