Dinesh Chandimal has been recalled to the Sri Lankan squad as SLC named 22 players for the forthcoming limited-overs series against South Africa. Kusal Perera is also a member of the team, having completed his isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.

Since the West Indies tour in March-April of this year, Chandimal has not played for Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan team will be captained by Dasun Shanaka, with Dhananjaya de Silva as his deputy.
