Sri Lanka recall Maharoof for ODIs in UK

By Blogs - Wed Jun 08, 8:04 am

Sri Lankan allrounder Farveez Maharoof is closer to a return to international cricket after being called into the squad for the one-day series against England and Ireland.

Fellow allrounder Danushka Gunathilaka, batsman Upul Tharanga, legspinner Seekkuge Prasanna and offspinner Suraj Randiv will also join the squad for the ODIs, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said on Wednesday in a statement.

Maharoof, who played the last of his 104 ODIs against Bangladesh in March 2012, was rewarded after the 31-year-old emerged as the Premier Limited Over Tournament’s leading wicket-taker.

SLC did not specify cricketers who would return home after the three-Test series.

Sri Lanka take on England in the final Test at Lord’s on Thursday, hoping to avoid a 3-0 defeat.
