Both teams named 16-member squad for the upcoming bilateral ODI series starting from November 1.
MS Dhoni has been rested from the first three ODIs and Virat Kohli has been given the charge to monitor the team. Dhoni opted out for rest as he has to feature in a long tour of Australia and WC2015 thereby making way for Wriddhiman Saha. Bhuvneshwar Kumar had also been granted rest.
There are some fitness concerns about the Sri lanka’s star batsman Kumar Sangakkara along with all-rounder Thisara Perera but both have been included in the squad. Niroshan Dickwella and Lahiru Gamage earned maiden call.
