NEW DELHI: The Sri Lankan cricket board on Wednesday announced a 17-man T20 squad for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh, with Wanindu Hasaranga leading the team despite his recent suspension.
The 26-year-old skipper will not participate in the first two matches of the three-match tournament due to his International Cricket Council (ICC) ban. Hasaranga received the penalty for verbally abusing an umpire during a T20 match against Afghanistan.
During the particular match, Hasaranga contested an umpire’s decision not to call a no-ball on a high delivery to Kamindu Mendis in the final over, with Sri Lanka needing 11 runs from three balls.
The first T20 match of the series is scheduled for March 4. In addition to the T20 matches, Sri Lanka will also play three one-day internationals and two Tests during their tour of Bangladesh, concluding on April 3.
Sri Lanka’s T20 squad: Wanindu Hasaranga (capt), Charith Asalanka, Kusal Mendis, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, Maheesh Theekshana, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Perera, Dilshan Madushanka, Nuwan Thushara, Matheesha Pathirana, Akila Dananjaya, Binura Fernando, Kamindu Mendis, Avishka Fernando and Jeffrey Vandersay
