A 30 man squad was named for the forthcoming WC/T20 as per the ICC’s cutoff date which was 28th February. The Selection committee has included Jeevantha Kulatunga to the squad considering his performance during the T20. This decision was made taking into consideration the injury concern to some of the players already named in the WC/T20 squad.
The selectors took this decision after the conclusion of the Provincial T20 tournament on the 7th of March, in which Jeevantha was adjudicated as the man of the Tournament. Jeevanthas’ inclusion has been notified to the ICC.
The final 15 man squad will be selected in due course.
