Malinga dropped for Pakistan ODIs

Colombo: Lasith Malinga has been dropped by Sri Lanka for the upcoming five-match ODI series against Pakistan.

Malinga has struggled for form since making his comeback to the team in February and the seamer has been overlooked for the latest selection.

Former captain Angelo Mathews - already missing from the squad for the ongoing Test series - has failed to recover from a calf injury in time to be included.

Middle-order batsman Chamara Kapugedera makes the cut, while all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna returns to the side.

Test skipper Dinesh Chandimal, who was not initially included for the recent ODI series against India, also features.

Sri Lanka won the first of two Tests between the sides before the teams lock horns in the shorter format from October 13.

Sri Lanka one-day squad: Upul Tharanga (Captain), Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Milinda Siriwardana, Chamara Kapugedera, Thisara Perera, Seekkuge Prasanna, Nuwan Pradeep, Suranga Lakmal, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Akila Dananjaya and Jeffrey Vandersay.
