Malinga was among a host of players who opted out of the recent tour of Pakistan, which Sri Lanka ended with a historic 3-0 whitewash of the top-ranked T20 side in the world.
Dasun Shanaka skippered an inexperienced team in Malinga's absence, but the paceman is set to resume leadership duties in a three-match series that starts at Adelaide Oval on October 27.
Batsmen Rajapaksa and Oshada are also among the 16 players selected after making their debuts in Pakistan.
Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera and Niroshan Dickwella are among the other names to come back into the squad.
