Bhanuka Rajapaksa
In the meantime, Bhanuka Rajapaksa has requested that Sri Lanka Cricket release him from the current squad, as he wants to take a break from ODI cricket. Accordingly, Rajapaksa will be released from the squad - added SLC. 

However, only hours earlier, Timesonline had exclusively reported Rajapaksa had wanted him excluded in the squad since wanting to feature in the T10 League.
