Will Malinga lose his place in the team? Featured

Captain of the Sri Lanka T-20 team Lasith Malinga not only faces the threat of losing his captaincy, he is at risk of losing a spot in the team as well, it is reported.

According to SLC internal sources, Malinga may not get a place in the team for the upcoming West Indies tour to Sri Lanka in February.

The Chairman of the selection committee Asantha de Mel said that if he loses his captaincy, it would be a problem to give him a spot in the team.

It is reported that most likely Angelo Mathews would be given the T-20 captaincy.

Meanwhile, suggestions have been made to promote a young Lankan team in preparation for the T-20 world Cup this year and appoint Dasun Chanaka as the T-20 Captain.
