Gunaratne, Pradeep return for India ODIs”

Jayasekera has the power to make two changes to the squad named by Sri Lanka Cricket.

All-rounder Asela Gunaratne and fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep have made a comeback to the Sri Lankan national squad for the three-match One-Day International series in India, the selectors announced on Tuesday (December 5).

The islanders are now involved in a three-Test rubber against India.

Sports Minister will now meet the selectors, board officials and skipper Thisara Perera this afternoon before approving the team.

While the first match is scheduled to be played on December 10, the second encounter will take place in Mohali on December 13 followed by the third and final ODI in Visakhapatnam on December 17.

The delay in departure of theODI squad was a serious concern as one of the members of the team being left-arm spinner Sachith Pathirana had already boarded the flight to India, but then all the nine players were called back.

The players had arrived at the airport for the 12:30 a.m. flight to Delhi. Earlier in a dramatic action, Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera ordered all nine players boarding to India last night to disembark the plane as they were leaving the country without his approval.

The Minister said, the team was leaving the country without his approval, a blatant violation of the country's Sports Law which requires the incumbent Sports Minister's approval.

"Most players reached the airport around 9 pm on Monday".

Sri Lanka ODI squad: Thisara Perera (captain), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Asela Gunaratne, Chathuranga de Silva, Sachith Pathirana, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dushmantha Chameera, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep.
