Sanath Jayasuriya makes T2Sanath Jayasuriya makes T20 cut
Dashing top-order batsman Sanath Jayasuriya has been included in Sri Lanka's 15-man squad for the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean.
The 40-year-old Jayasuriya is a surprise inclusion in the side which also features promising wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Chandimal and all-rounder Thissara Perera.
Jayasuriya last played a Twenty20 International against India in December, but has struggled to seal his spot with the Mumbai team in the Indian Premier League.
Jayasuriya featured in the first three matches for the Mumbai team in the IPL before being dropped.
Sri Lanka's selectors have, however, overlooked middle-order batsman Jeevantha Kulatunga - a late addition to the list of probables - as well as opening batsman Upul Tharanga.
Runners-up in the last edition of the World Twenty20, Sri Lanka are drawn in Group B along with New Zealand and Zimbabwe.
They take on New Zealand in the inaugural match of the tournament on April 30.
Team: K Sangakkara, T Dilshan, S Jayasuriya, M Jayawardene, D Chandimal, C Kapugedera, A Mathews, C Jayasinghe, T Perera, M Muralitharan, A Mendis, S Randiv, L Malinga, C Welegedera, N Kulasekera.
