Malinga, Maharoof in Lanka's probables' list

July 10, 2008 17:50 IST

Maverick pacer Lasith Malinga and all-rounder Farveez Maharoof are among Sri Lanka's 30 probables for the September-slated Champions Trophy in Pakistan.

Both Malinga and Maharoof had missed the recently-concluded Asia Cup in Pakistan due to injuries. While the former is recovering from a knee injury that forced him to stay out of the inaugural Indian Premier League, the latter is recuperating from a side strain.

Opening batsman Malinda Warnapura and Test specialists Thilan Samaraweera, Michael Vandort and wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene are the new inclusions in the 30-man probables' list.

The squad also features players like left-arm seamers Sujeewa de Silva, Chanaka Welegedara and Gayan Wijekoon, who have represented the national team in the last year, although they are yet to make their debut in one-day internationals.

Probables: Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Sanath Jayasuriya, Chamara Kapugedera, Chamara Silva, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chaminda Vaas, Thilan Thushara, Dilhara Fernando, Muttiah Muralitharan, Nuwan Kulasekera, Ajantha Mendis, Jehan Mubarak, Mahela Udawatte, Kaushalya Weeraratne, Malinda Warnapura, Michael Vandort, Upul Tharanga, Thilina Kandamby, Thilan Samaraweera, Prasanna Jayawardene (wk), Farveez Maharoof, Malinga Bandara, Gayan Wijekoon, Dilruwan Perera, Lasith Malinga, Chanaka Welagedera, Ishara Amerasinghe, Sujeewa de Silva, Rangana Herath.
