Muttiah Muralitharan has been included in Sri Lanka's squad for the limited-overs tour of Australia.
The off-spinner, who retired from Test cricket in July after becoming the first bowler to take 800 wickets in the longest form of the game, was included in the 16-man party who will play one Twenty20 international and three one-dayers in October and November.
Muralitharan has already indicated he intends to play for his country at next year's World Cup and add to his record 515 one-day scalps.
"Muralitharan is definitely part of our World Cup plans and we have included him to give him some international exposure ahead of the big event," chairman of selectors Aravinda De Silva said.
There is also a quintet of pacemen in the party with Lasith Malinga, Dilhara Fernando, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dammika Prasad and Thisara Perera all named.
All-rounder Angelo Mathews' selection is subject to fitness as he recovers from a strained left thigh muscle. Thilina Kandamby has been put on stand-by.
Sri Lanka squad: Kumar Sangakkara (capt, wkt), Mahela Jayawardene, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Chamara Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Chamara Kapugedara, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekera, Dilhara Fernando, Muttiah Muralitharan, Suraj Randiv, Dammika Prasad, Dinesh Chandimal
