SL vs WI: Angelo Mathews named stand-in T20I Captain for West Indies tour- Angelo Mathews has been appointed stand-in skipper for Sri Lanka for the T20I series against West Indies. The decision was taken 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.
“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to announce the appointment of Angelo Mathews, as the stand-in captain, for the T20 International series vs West Indies,” said Sri Lanka Cricket in a tweet post.
