Spinner Jeffery Vandersay has been recalled into the Sri Lanka squad for a three-match series against South Africa starting on Tuesday but questions have been raised whether he will just make up the numbers and return without a match.

Given that Sri Lanka has four other players who can also bowl spin in Dhananjaya de Silva, Kamindu Mendis, Akila Dananjaya and Lakshan Sandakan, it baffles most followers who think that Vanderdsay will get yet another raw deal unless injuries make selection matters easy.

The three T20 matches are scheduled to be played on March 19, 22 and 24.

Sri Lanka T20 squad: Lasith Malinga (captain), Niroshan Dickwella, Avishka Fernando, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kamindu Mendis, Priyamal Perera, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Isuru Udana, Asitha Fernando, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Lakshan Sandakan
