Lakmal & Randiv to make debut

Sri Lanka team management in India revealed to srilankacricket.lk that Fast bowler Suranga Lakmal and offspinner Suraj Randiv are set to make their international debuts this afternoon at Nagpur for the 2nd ODI.

Lakmal has earned a place in the side after he joined the team party upon injury to fellow fast bowler Dilhara Fernando. Known for his extra pace and bounce, the management has called upon him to topple the robust Indian top order.

Randiv, a genuine offspinner has impressed the tour selectors with his ability to land his offspinners on the seam a trait mastered by Harbajhan Singh. This attribute is seen as a key element to succeed in docile Indian wickets with the additional bounce such a delivery can create.

India lead the 5 match ODI series 1-0 with their thrilling win in Rajkot last Tuesday.
