Present Captain of the National Cricket Team, Dimuth Karunarathne is ready to give up the captaincy after the Ireland series. The challenge of replacing the captaincy is vested with the Sri Lanka Cricket Selection Committee.

Chief of the Sri Lanka Cricket Selection Committee, Pramodya Wickramasinghe, informed that he has two players for a replacement of the captaincy. Probably one of two young players who are capable with experience and performance, will be a suitable replacement. Both these players are from Moratuwa. Performance alone without good behavior is not sufficient for this position since there were several issues with the behavior of the Sri Lanka Cricket players in the recent past.   

Kusal Mendis and Dananjaya Silva are earmarked for the future challenge. Even though Kusal is up to the performance, in terms of behavior, he has some allegations. But Dananjaya De Silva is flailing both these requirements.
