The Sri Lanka cricket team probables for the world cup 2015 are declared. The selectors show utmost faith on regulars and stars of the world cup 2011 which the Lankans ended as runners up.
The team for the world cup will be led by all-rounder and the best player that the team has Angelo Mathews.

The ICC Media Release of the selection read:
Sri Lanka, the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup finalists, has named its preliminary 30-member squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

Captained by Angelo Mathews, the squad has a blend of youth and experience with nine players returning from the 2011 event. They include fast bowlers Lasith Malinga and Nuwan Kulasekara, and Ajantha Mendis, the spinner, who, with experience of Australian and New Zealand conditions, are expected to spearhead Sri Lanka’s bowling attack. The selectors have chosen plenty of pace options keeping the conditions in mind.

Farveez Maharoof and Nuwan Pradeep, who last played a One-Day International for Sri Lanka in 2012, were also included in the squad. The selectors have also included plenty of new faces including Lakshan Sandakan, the Chinaman bowler, and Tharindu Kaushal, the offspinner, who are yet to make their inernational debut.
