Media Release

27th February 2021 

Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to announce the appointment of Angelo Mathews, as the stand-in captain, for the T20 International series vs West Indies.

Mathews was appointed by the National Selectors, as Dasun Shanaka, who was appointed as the T20i Captain for the Tour of West Indies, is yet to join the team, owing to a delay in obtaining a US Transit Visa.

Shanaka confronted this issue pursuant to the loss of his previous passport, which had a valid visa for the USA stamped on it.

He is expected to join the team once the issue is resolved.
