Sri Lanka named all-rounder Dasun Shanaka as captain in place of the injured Kusal Perera for the one-day series against India starting Sunday, reports AFP. Wicketkeeper-batsman Perera will miss three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches after hurting his shoulder in training, Sri Lanka
Cricket said Friday. Fast bowler Binura Fernando was also injured during practice on Thursday and will miss the 50 over games, the board added.
Perera, 30, had been under pressure even before his injury because of Sri Lanka's poor performances, and was tipped to be replaced by Shanaka.
