The Sri Lanka team will face Australia
Sri Lanka have retained faith in most of their World Cup squad for their five-game Twenty20 series against Australia.
The visitors have named a 20-man squad for the series, with 11 of the 15 players chosen for last year’s T20 World Cup making the cut.
Only Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Perera, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Akila Dananjaya are missing.
De Silva withdrew from the recent ODI series against Zimbabwe after his wife gave birth to their first child, while Perera was also out through injury.
Rajapaksa retired from international cricket in January citing family commitments, but there was speculation the 30-year-old was unhappy with the new fitness criteria he would have to meet.
In a bizarre twist, Rajapaksa reversed his decision to retire a week later, saying he wants to play for the national team for years to come.
Sri Lanka beat Zimbabwe 2-1 in the recent ODI series.
Australia named their 16-man T20 squad on Tuesday, with David Warner and Mitchell Marsh the biggest omissions to allow rest ahead of the multi-format tour of Pakistan.
The T20 series against Sri Lanka kicks off on February 11 at the SCG.
