Colombo - Sri Lanka have named a 13-member squad, including a 19-year-old uncapped batsman, for the five-match one-day international series against Zimbabwe.

Wanidu Hasaranga, who has played 12 first class matches and scored 775 runs, was brought into the squad led by skipper Angelo Mathews and Vice Captain Upul Tharanga.

Zimbabwe begins their first tour of Sri Lanka in 15 years by playing the first one-day international Friday at the Galle International Stadium, which will host its first limited-overs match in 17 years.

The last ODI at Galle was in June 2000, when Sri Lanka beat South Africa by 37 runs.

The first two ODIs with Zimbabwe will be at Galle and the remaining three 50-over games will be at the refurbished Hambantota Stadium.

The only Test match will be at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo starting July 14.

Sri Lanka squad: Angelo Mathews (captain), Upul Tharanga (vice captain), Niroshan Dikwella, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Asela Gunaratne, Wanidu Hasaranga, L. Sandakan, Akila Dananjaya, Nuwan Pradeep Fernando, Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Madushanka.

Zimbabwe squad: Graeme Cremer (captain) Solomon Mire, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Ryan Burl, Peter Moor, Raza Butt, Tendai Chatara, Christ Mpofu, Donald Tiripano, Richard Ngarava, Hamilton Masakadza, Malcolm Waller, Chamu Chibhabha and Tarisai Musakanda.
