Colombo - Fast bowler Dilhara Fernando has been surprisingly recalled by Sri Lanka after more than three years out, for three Twenty20 matches against India next month.

The 36-year-old Fernando last played for Sri Lanka in July 2012.

Sri Lanka Cricket says Dinesh Chandimal has the captaincy as Lasith Malinga is out injured.

Seniors Angelo Mathews, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath, and seam bowler Nuwan Pradeep will also miss the series due to injuries.

The series, preparation for the World Twenty20, begins on February 9 in Pune, India.
