  • Angelo Mathews returns for Sri Lanka as hosts name squad

England all-rounder Moeen Ali will not leave his coronavirus quarantine on Wednesday as previously planned and is now highly unlikely to play any part the Test series against Sri Lanka. The good news for them though is that Angelo Mathews, who injured his hamstring in the semi-final of the Lanka Premier League and Dinesh Chandimal, who was injured in South Africa, will be part of Sri Lanka playing XI.

Mathews was originally named in the Sri Lankan squad for the two Tests in South Africa but later withdrawn after he suffered a hamstring injury in a domestic T20 competition.

Seamer Nuwan Pradeep, allrounder Ramesh Mendis, left-arm wrist-spinner Lakshan Sandakan and batsman Roshen Silva also return to the squad; none of the quartet were involved in South Africa.

The two teams will lock horns against each other in two Test matches that will be played from January 14 to January 18 and 22-26 January respectively in Galle International Stadium behind closed doors in a biosecure bubble to ensure the safety of the players.
