Colombo - Sri Lanka all-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva rejoined
the national team touring the West Indies after attending his father's funeral,
officials said on Monday.
Ranjan de Silva, a local politician, was gunned down in a
Colombo suburb 10 days ago on the eve of the team's departure.
"National player Dhananjaya De Silva left the country
on June 3 evening to join the team in West Indies," Sri Lanka Cricket said
in a statement.
The three-Test tour starts on Wednesday at the Queen's Park
Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Sri Lanka are also missing opener Dimuth Karunaratne who
fractured a finger while batting in the nets earlier last month.
