Mathews named stand-in skipper for West Indies T20 series
Angelo Mathews has been named as the stand-in Captain instead of Dasun Shanaka by Sri Lanka Cricket for the Twenty20 series in West Indies.
“Mathews was appointed by the national selectors as Dasun Shanaka, who was appointed as the T20 captain for the tour of West Indies, is yet to join the team owing to a delay in obtaining a U.S. transit visa,” the SLC said in a statement.
“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," SLC further said.
