Sports Minister recalls SL ODI players before take off

Sri Lanka Cricket bungling – the reason for recalling Sri Lanka ODI team from airport?

Sri Lanka Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera has prevented the national One-day International (ODI) squad from leaving the country for not getting his approval before selecting the team.

Last week, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) had named all-rounder Thisara Perera as one-day captain in place of Upul Tharanga.

The visitors are also scheduled to play three Twenty20 internationals against India starting on December 20 in Cuttack.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket announced the man squad for the three-match ODI series and the list was sent to the minister, six hours before take off.

The three ODIs will be played in Dharamsala (December 10), Mohali (December 13) and Visakhapatnam (December 17).

Gunaratne returns to the side for the first time since being injured in July against India in Galle.

The ones joining them with just four days to go for the first match, apart from Thisara, are Kusal, Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Asela Gunaratne, Chaturanga de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Nuwan Pradeep, Dushmantha Chameera and Sachith Pathirana. He will strengthen the batting order alongside Mathews, the former skipper who came back after having missed the last ODI series against Pakistan through injury.
