Wanindu Hasaranga, the regular skipper, will continue to lead the team for the series. However, he will be unavailable for the first two matches due to a suspension received for criticizing umpiring decisions in the final T20I against Afghanistan. In his absence, Charith Asalanka, designated as the deputy for the series, will take charge as the acting captain for the first two games.

The remainder of the squad remains unchanged from the one that faced Afghanistan, with leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay added as the extra member in the 17-man squad.
