Sri Lanka national selectors, on Tuesday, announced the Test squad that will tour Australia in December-January. The ODI squad will be announced later.
No major surprises are there in the Sri Lanka team. Dimuth Karunaratne, who impressed against New Zealand, has been retained for the tough tour Down Under. One absentee from the Sri Lanka's Test against New Zealand is Tharindu Kaushal but that is understandable since spin will not be a major factor on Australian pitches. His replacement is Nuwan Pradeep.
Mahela Jayawardena will lead the side with Angelo Mathews being his deputy.
