Ranjan de Silva, a local politician, was gunned down in a Colombo suburb 10 days ago on the eve of the team's departure.

"National player Dhananjaya De Silva left the country on 3 June evening to join the team in West Indies," Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.

The three-Test tour starts on Wednesday at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
