Sri Lanka and England announce squads for limited-overs series

Sri Lanka Cricket had already announced that five players will be joining the ODI squad -- Farveez Maharoof, Upul Tharanga, Seekkuge Prasanna, Danushka Gunathilaka and Suraj Randiv

Meanwhile, England have decided to rest Alex Hales, Joe Root and Moeen Ali, all part of the ODI squad, for the one-off T20 game against Sri Lanka. 

ECB selectors have also named two new players for the T20 side -- Tymal Mills and Dawid Malan. Mills is said to be one of the fastest bowlers in the domestic circuit in England. 

England Test captain Alastair Cook was quoted as saying - 



The guy can bowl quickly.He's obviously worked on his skills: he can change-up from a 93mph thunderbolt to a slower ball.



Middlesex batsman Malan was rewarded with a place in the England T20 squad after his impressive show against Pakistan A in UAE. He is likely to open the innings for England along with Jason Roy.
