Mendis’ last Test for Sri Lanka came against Bangladesh in March 2013

Sri Lanka have included spinner Ajantha Mendis in their Test squad for their upcoming tour of Bangladesh, which gets underway on January 27.

Mendis will replace off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake, who was a part of the Sri Lankan team that recently toured the United Arab Emirates.

Meanwhile, batsman Kithuruwan Vithanage has also been drafted into the side since Lahiru Thirimanne has still not sufficiently recovered from the ankle injury he sustained during the ODI series against Pakistan in December.

Sri Lanka Test Squad: Angelo Mathews (capt), Dinesh Chandimal (vc), Dimuth Karunaratne, Kaushal Silva, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Prasanna Jayawardene, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Rangana Herath, Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Shaminda Eranga, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando, Ajantha Mendis
