Lasith Malinga appointed limited-overs captain

Fast bowler Lasith Malinga has been appointed as captain of the Sri Lanka cricket team for the upcoming Sri Lanka’s tour in New Zealand.
Wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella has been named vice captain.
 
Since the court has suspended functioning of the Cabinet, the President holds the powers of the sports minister. Accordingly, he has approved the Sri Lanka team, led by the new captain.
 
Team members who didn’t take part in the match against England, including Angelo Mathews, Dhanushka Gunathilake, Asela Gunaratne and Seekkuge Prasanna, have been included in the team.
