Sri Lanka Team Squad 2017 Champions Trophy
Sri Lanka Cricket Board announced 15-men team squad for upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England. Which starts on 1st June and end on 18th June.

Angelo Mathews will lead Sri Lanka Side in 2017 Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka. Lasith Malinga, who last played an ODI in November 2015, has been named in Sri Lanka’s 15-man squad for the Champions Trophy in June.

Also in the squad are batsman Chamara Kapugedera, who has not played ODIs since January 2016, and fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep, who has been only a sporadic presence in Sri Lanka’s ODI squads over the past year.

The Sri Lanka squad – including Malinga – is expected to assemble in Sri Lanka on around the 10th of May, before they leave to Kandy for a six-day training camp. Sumathipala said the board chose the Pallekele Stadium for the camp, in order to better replicate conditions Sri Lanka may face in England.

Sri Lanka will play South Africa in their first Group B match at Kennington Oval on June 3 followed by matches against India (June 8 in Kennington Oval) and Pakistan (June 12 in Cardiff).


The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-finals.
