    Sri Lanka have decided to rest strike bowler Lasith Malinga for the first Test against West Indies in Galle which starts on Monday.

    A spokesman for the selection committee said on Wednesday the paceman was being rested because of the amount of cricket he played on the recent tour of Australia

    Malinga, who also has a lingering knee problem, won the man of the series award in Sri Lanka's 2-1 victory over Australia in the one-day internationals.

    The selectors named four fast bowlers in their 16-man squad for the first Test -- Dammika Prasad, Dilhara Fernando, Thilan Thushara and Suranga Lakmal.

    Sri Lanka will be without spinner Muttiah Muralitharan who retired from Tests in June with a world record haul of 800 wickets.
