Mathews - Chandimal named in Sri Lanka Test squad

In Pakistan's first home Test after 10 years, Dimuth Karunaratne will lead a full-strength Sri Lanka side, with Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal returning to the squad.
The first Test between the two countries will start on December 11 in Rawalpindi followed by the second in Karachi from December 19.

It must be noted that the country has not hosted a Test match since the 2009 Lahore terror attack that saw several Sri Lankan cricketers and support staff walk away with several injuries.

Sri Lanka Test squad: Dimuth Karunaratne (capt), Oshada Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Perera (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilruwan Perera, Lasith Embuldeniya, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara, Vishwa Fernando, Kasun Rajitha, Lakshan Sandakan
