Pallekele - Sri Lanka on Tuesday selected uncapped Milinda Siriwardana and Sachith Pathirana in a 15-man squad for the one-day series against Pakistan starting on July 11.

The five-match series opens in Dambulla, with other games to be played in Pallekele (July 15), Colombo (July 19, 22) and Hambantota (July 26).

The squad for two Twenty20 internationals in Colombo on July 30 and August 1 will be named later.
