Colombo: Sri Lanka's star batsman Mahela Jayawardene and strike bowler Rangana Herath will not play in the three-match one-day series against Bangladesh starting this month.

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement on Monday that the two players have been rested for the ODI series, but will take part in the Test series and a squad to play two Twenty20 matches before the one-dayers.

The pair also missed out on five ODIs against Pakistan played in the United Arab Emirates last year for personal reasons.
