Sri Lanka announce lineup for Afghanistan series


COLOMBO, May 30 (UNI) Sri Lanka will step up their Cricket World Cup qualifier preparations in a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan at home.
Up-and-coming pacer Matheesha Pathirana could make his ODI debut after an impressive title-winning IPL season as he was included in the 16-man squad for the first two ODIs of the Afghanistan series.
Pathirana, nicknamed “Baby Malinga” for his similar round arm action, has capped in Sri Lanka’s T20Is but has yet to appear in the longer format. Dushmantha Chameera, returning after a long injury truce, will lead the offensive pace.
