Sri Lanka selectors have named a 16-member squad for the upcoming 3-match T20I series against Afghanistan.

Wanindu Hasaranga will continue to lead the side, while Charith Asalanka will work as his deputy. Sri Lanka’s pace spearhead Dushmantha Chameera will miss the series as he is yet to recover from an injury which he sustained during the ODI leg of the tour.
