Sri Lanka have recalled all-rounder Thisara Perera to the 15-member T20 International (T20I) squad to play two matches against the visiting West Indies. The cricket board said right-arm medium-pacer Nuwan Pradeep, who was dropped from the three-match T20I series against India earlier this year, was also brought back. Sri Lanka retained the ODI squad with the exception of Dimuth Karunaratne who skippered the 50-overs team, but does not play in the shortest form of the game. 

In the current three-match ODI series against West Indies, Sri Lanka has already won two and the series with one more match to be played in Kandy on Sunday. The first T20I is on Wednesday while the other will be on Friday. Both matches will be played in Pallekele.

Sri Lanka squad: Lasith Malinga (c), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Shehan Jayasuriya, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lakshan Sandakan, Isuru Udana, Nuwan Pradeep and Lahiru Kumara
