Test return for Vaas

Left-armer back in Test team but misses one-dayers

Vaas: Test return

Chaminda Vaas has been recalled to the Sri Lanka Test team to face Bangladesh, but was left out of the one-day squad.

Sri Lanka play two Tests against Bangladesh, starting on December 26, followed by a three-team one-day tournament also involving Zimbabwe.

Left-handed paceman Vaas has been brought back into the Test reckoning for the tour, but has again been overlooked for the one-day side.

The 34-year-old was dropped after recent games in Zimbabwe, and he again not worked his way back into the limited overs side.

Sanath back

Veteran batsman Sanath Jayasuriya is back in the one-day side after being rested for the Zimbabwe series, which Sri Lanka won with a 5-0 whitewash.

The 39-year-old will replace fellow left-hander Mahela Udawatte, after he failed to make the expected impact in Zimbabwe.

All-rounder Angelo Mathews and batsman Thilina Kandamby have been retained for the limited overs games after making their debuts in Zimbabwe.

Sri Lanka arrive in Dhaka for a three-day practice match on December 21 before the first Test on Boxing Day.

The tri-nation one-day series then follows from January 10 with each team playing each other once before a January 16 final.

Sri Lanka Test squad:

Mahela Jayawardene (capt), Malinda Warnapura, Michael Vandort, Kumar Sangakkara, Thilan Samaraweera, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Prasanna Jayawardene, Chaminda Vaas, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Dammika Prasad, Chamara Kapugedera, Farveez Maharoof, Dilhara Fernando, Thilan Thushara.
