Hashan Tillakaratne, Sri Lankas new Test captain
by Rex Clementine
This is the first time the Sri Lankan cricket selectors have appointed separate captains for the One Day and the Test squads. Speaking on the decision to appoint two separate captains, chairman of selectors Lalith Kaluperuma said that two seperate captains were picked as the selectors felt that it would was too much of a strain for a single person to handle both sides.
Kaluperuma also said that the appointments were only for the New Zealand series and that these would be reviewed before Sri Lankas tour of West Indies. The selectors have had discussions with several senior players and had reviewed all their performances before making the decisions.
The Sri Lankan squad for the two match Test series against the Blacks Caps would be picked after the warm up games at the NCC.
