Spinner Rangana Herath has been added to Sri Lanka's squad for the remainder of this month's ODI series against England.

Herath has replaced seamer Suranga Lakmal, who sustained a hamstring injury prior to the second match.

Fast bowler Shaminda Eranga had originally been announced as the substitute, but a press release revealed the change.

"At a selection committee meeting, it has been decided by the national selectors to send Rangana for the Sri Lanka tour of England series, in place of Suranga, who is injured. Suranga will return to Sri Lanka, and Rangana will join the squad," read a statement from Sri Lanka Cricket.

The five-match series is currently locked after a win apiece. Old Trafford in Manchester, Lord's in London and Edgbaston in Birmingham will host fixtures three, four and five on 28 and 31 May – and 3 June – respectively. Two Tests will follow.
