Sri Lanka Saturday dropped former captain Angelo Mathews and all-rounder Thisara Perera from the team’s T20 International (T20I) squad for the three-match series against New Zealand. Veteran paceman Lasith Malinga has been retained captain in the shortest format with Sri Lanka Cricket naming a 15-man squad for the series starting September 1 in Kandy. 

Mathews and Perera, both aged 30, have been left out of the team that has Niroshan Dickwella as vice-captain. Perera played his last T20I against South Africa in March in Johannesburg. Mathews last featured in a T20I match in Colombo against the visiting Proteas side last year. 

Sri Lanka squad: Lasith Malinga (c), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Shehan Jayasuriya, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Isuru Udana, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara and Lahiru Madushanka.
