HAMBANTOTA: Sri Lanka have named Nuwan Pradeep as replacement for the injured Nuwan Kulasekara for the remaining four One-Day Internationals (ODI) against India. “He has been part of the Sri Lanka A team that took part in the tri-series in Zimbabwe and having played against Pakistan in the recent Test series, we thought he will be the most likely replacement,” said Sri Lanka chairman of selectors Ashantha de Mel. Sri Lanka will play their second match against India at Hambantota today.
