Mathews, Lakmal declared fit for West Indies tour
May 18 (CRICKETNMORE) - Sri Lanka all-rounder Angelo Mathews and fast bowler Suranga Lakmal have been declared fit by the board for the upcoming Test tour of the West Indies.
Both players have not played a lot of cricket in recent months but were part of Sri Lanka’s eight-day training camp in Colombo.
With the team grappling with injury issues for a while now, Sri Lanka have sought the services of Cricket Victoria's High-Performance Manager Tim McCaskil to work with the bowlers.
“I wanted to get Tim's expertise. He is more of a fast-bowling bio-mechanics expert. He took a look at our bowlers' mechanics,” Chandika Hathurusingha, the Sri Lanka head coach, was quoted as saying.
The first Test between Sri Lanka and the West Indies starts in Trinidad on 6 June.
Sri Lanka Test squad: Dinesh Chandimal (Captain), Mahela Udawatte, Kusal Mendis, Kusal Janith Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Roshen Silva, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Rangana Herath, Dilruwan Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Lahiru Gamage, Kasun Rajitha, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara, and Asitha Fernando.
