Dilshan is the new captain

 

Sri Lanka's cricket authorities yesterday named all-rounder Tillakaratne Dilshan as captain for the upcoming tour of England, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a statement.
 
“Dilshan will lead the side in all three formats of the game -- Tests, one-day internationals and Twenty20s -- on the tour,” SLC said.
 
The 34-year-old Dilshan, replaces Kumar Sangakkara, who stepped down after Sri Lanka lost the World Cup final to India earlier this month.
 
Fitness worries meant the five-member national selection panel headed by Duleep Mendis, a former Sri Lanka skipper, did not name a vice-captain.
 
“The prospective candidates are nursing injuries, and their availability for the forthcoming tour is still in question,” the statement said.
