Thisara Perera named Sri Lanka's limited-overs captain

All-rounder Thisara Perera will take over as Sri Lanka’s ODI captain from the upcoming three-match series against India.

anath Jayasuriya’s decision to elevate his former opening partner as captain surprised many although he has been in prolific form this year having amassed over 800 runs in 22 ODIs at an average of 47 with two centuries and five half-centuries.
