Sri Lanka have recalled batsman Dhananjaya de Silva, left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara and seamer Nuwan Pradeep for the three-match Test series against India.

The series will begin in Galle on Wednesday.

De Silva’s return was expected after skipper Dinesh Chandimal was ruled out by pneumonia. Though, the highest scorer in Sri Lanka’s triumphant series against Australia last year, De Silva has struggled to strike form in recent months with his last eight innings fetching just 159 runs at 19.87.

Nuwan Pradeep last played a test against South Africa in Newlands where he failed to complete his 16th over when he left the field with a pain in his left thigh. Malinda Pushpakumara was in the squad for the two-match Test series against Bangladesh but did not play a game. Out from the squad are skipper Dinesh Chandimal, leftarmer Lakshan Sandakan who bowls the chinaman and seamer Dushmantha  Chameera

Sri Lanka Test squad: Rangana Herath (c), Upul Tharanga, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dimuth Karunaratne, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Asela Gunaratne, Dananjaya de Silva, Dilruwan Perera, Malinda Pushpakumara, Vishwa Fernando, Suranga Lakmal,  Lahiru Kumara

India Test squad: Virat Kohli(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Abhinav Mukund
