Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Monday announced the squad for the T20I series and the ODI series of Sri Lanka’s tour of West Indies. The team departs for the country for an all-format series on February 23.
The board has decided to appoint different captains for the ODI and T20I series. Dimuth Karunaratne would lead the ODI squad, whereas Dasun Shanaka would be the new captain of the T20I squad.
Former team skipper Dinesh Chandimal has made his return to the team after playing his last white-ball series in 2019.
The squad has welcomed three debutants for the tour, batsmen Pathum Nissanka and Ashen Bandara, and under-19 team pacer Dilshan Madushanka.
Right-arm fast-medium bowler Suranga Lakmal will replace bowler Lahiru Kumara, who was named in the 20-player squad for the tour, as the player tested positive for COVID-19 and would not be travelling with the team.
