Sri Lanka have recently announced a strong squad for the Asia Cup starting from 27 August and Dilshan Madushanka has earned his maiden call-up. Dasun Shanaka will lead the team while Charith Asalanka will be his deputy as the team will start their campaign with a game against Afghanistan.

Ahead of the Asia Cup 2022 scheduled for next week, Sri Lanka have announced a strong squad for the tournament. They will start their campaign with the tournament opener against Afghanistan on August 27 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. The team will be led by regular skipper Dasun Shanaka while Charith Asalanka will be his deputy. 

The team has handed a debut to 21-year old left-arm seamer Dilshan Madushanaka. Another notable selection in the team was Ashen Bandara who last played for the national team in July 2021 against India. Also, the experienced duo of  Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva have returned to the squad. Jeffrey Vandersay who also missed the last T20I series against Australia along with these two has returned to the squad. 

Binura Fernando and Kasun Rajitha were also named in the squad but they sustained injuries in SLC Invitational T20 League 2022. Asitha Fernando and Pramod Madushan are likely to replace both these players.
