Johannesburg: Sri Lanka`s opening batsman Upul Tharanga might make his first Test appearance in seven years after being named in the Sri Lanka squad for the two-match series against Proteas starting at Galle on July 16.

Tharanga will replace Dimuth Karunaratne in the 15-man squad, with fast bowlers Nuwan Pradeep and Nuwan Kulasekara and specialist wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene also left out, Sports24.com reported.

Left-hander Tharanga`s last Test was against England in 2007 but he has been out of favour in the five-day game since, although he has been picked for one-day internationals.
