Colombo - Fast bowler Isuru Udana has been included in Sri Lanka's one-day squad for the first time for the five-match series against India starting on July 21 at Hambantota.

Batsman Chamara Kapugedera and left-arm spinner Rangana Herath were also brought in as Nuwan Pradeep, Sajeewa Weerakoon and Dilhara Fernando missed out from the squad that beat Pakistan 3-1 last month.

The other one-day matches are scheduled for July 24 (Hambantota), July 28 and July 31 (Colombo) and August 4 (Pallakele).

India will also play a Twenty20 international on August 7 at Pallakele.
