AFP: Sri Lanka omit Dilshan for England Test

AFP: Sri Lanka omit Dilshan for England Test: "COLOMBO (AFP) — Tillekeratne Dilshan was once again ignored by Sri Lanka's selectors when they named a 14-man squad on Friday for the first cricket Test against England. Dilshan, a seasoned middle-order batsman, was left out of the recent tour of Australia, but was expected to take the spot left vacant by the retiring former captain Marvan Atapattu.

The selectors instead picked left-handed Upul Tharanga and Jehan Mubarak as the batting options for the first of three Tests against Michael Vaughan's men starting in Kandy on December 1."
