Mathews missed the one-day series in South Africa, the tour of Australia and the home series against Bangladesh with a hamstring injury but was able to return to play for his Delhi franchise in the Indian Premier League. Maverick paceman Lasith Malinga, feared for his awkward action and toe-crushing yorkers, also returns after completing his rehabilitation following a knee injury which forced him out of the World Twenty20 in India last year. The 33-year-old, who quit test cricket in 2011, played the last of his 191 one-dayer internationals in 2015 and returned to international cricket with Twenty20 matches in Australia earlier this year.
