In a series of events after the humiliating series loss against Zimbabwe, Sri Lankan Team had to ate the bitter pill including the stepping down of Angelo Mathews from captaincy of the National Team, whereafter 27 year old lad Dinesh Chandimal has been appointed as the new captain of Sri Lanka for the longest format of the game.
SLC (Sri Lanka Cricket) has put faith on Upul Tharanga for One-Day Internationals and shorter format of the game including T20 Internationals.
“I’m very thankful to the job that Angie [Mathews] has done for us. Captaincy is not an easy job. He’s a match-winner for us, and I have huge hopes that he will continue to be one in the coming years as well,” Chandimal said in an interview.
