Sri Lankan cricket selectors recalled fast bowlers Dilhara Fernando and Ruchira Perera in the team that will play five one-day international matches against England, a cricket board spokesman said Wednesday.
The first march starts at Lord's on June 17.
Perera, 29, was recalled after being sidelined with a hamstring injury and Fernando, 26, is back after he worked on a persistent problem with his bowling action.
The pair replaces fast bowler Nuwan Zoysa and Nuwan Kulasekera who played in the test series, spokesman Samantha Algama said.
Sri Lanka squad team:
Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Kumar Sangakkara, Muttiah Muralitharan, Sanath Jayasuriya, Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chamara Kapugedera, Russel Arnold, Farveez Maharoof, Chaminda Vaas, Lasith Malinga, Dilhara Fernando, Ruchira Perera, Malinga Bandara.
