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.

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.
