Sri Lanka have named their squad for their upcoming tour of Ireland and England, which begins in May.

Sri Lanka will play two ODIs against Ireland in Clontarf before moving on to face England in five ODIs, two Tests and a one-off Twenty20 International.

According to sources, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) decided to name one big squad instead of a Test, ODI and Twenty20 squad.

It is also worth noting that wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara and veteran batsman Mahela Jayawardene will not be available for the Twenty20 against England since they are retiring from the format at the end of the ongoing World Twenty20.

Opener Tillkaratne Dilshan will not be present for the Test series since he retired from the longest format in October 2013.

Sri Lanka Squad: Kusal Perera, Kaushal Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne, Lahiru Thirimanne, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Prasanna Jayawardene, Ashan Priyanjan, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Chaturanga De Silva, Seekkuge Prasanna, Dilruwan Perera, Rangana Herath, Sachithra Senanayake, Ajantha Mendis, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal, Dhammika Prasad, Shaminda Eranga, Vishwa Fernando.
