Sri Lanka recalls Upul Tharanga for final ODI vs. Australia
Sri Lanka has recalled experienced batsman Upul Tharanga for the fifth one-day international against Australia after captain Angelo Mathews was ruled out of the rest of the tour with a calf injury.
Sri Lanka also included batsman Niroshan Dickwella and allrounder Dasun Shanaka in its 16-man squad for Sunday’s match.
Spin bowler Lakshan Sandakan and allrounder Thisara Perera were left out.
Usually an opening batsman, Tharanga had not been able to hold a regular spot in the team but returned relatively good performances batting at No.7 during Sri Lanka’s recent tour of England.
Australia has already secured the series 3-1.
