Dasun Shanaka has been named in Sri Lanka’s squad for the one-off T20I against India, to be held at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on September 6.

Wednesday’s match will also be Upul Tharanga’s first since being named skipper for the shortest form of the game in July following the resignation of Angelo Mathews who was the captain for all three formats of the game.
