Sri Lanka Cricket have announced the final 15-man squad for the coming ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 jointly co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. Angelo Mathews has been named the captain for the tournament with Lahiru Thirimanne being the vice-captain. There were questions revolving over Lasith Malinga’s fitness who makes a return to the Angelo Mathews-led side despite concerns over the pacer’s fitness.

The only name excluded from the current crop is that of fast bowler Shaminda Eranga, who has been left out.

The coming 11th edition of World Cup beginning from February 14 will be important for the veterans Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, for whom it will be the last time they represent the country at this level
