Dimuth Karunaratne named as Sri Lanka’s CWC 2019 captain

Sri Lankan management made an astonishing decision recently when they made Dimuth Karunaratne as Sri Lanka's captain for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The left-handed batsman last played ODI for Sri Lanka in the ICC World Cup 2015 against England.

He made a comeback in Sri Lanka's ODI side after a gap of 4 years and straightaway named as the captain of the side. Karunaratne has played only 17 ODIs for Sri Lanka and averages only 15.83.

He recently captained Sri Lanka to a famous Test series win against South Africa. Sri Lanka has made a lot of changes in its ODI's captaincy rank recently with Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, and Dinesh Chandimal occupying the prime spot in the last four months or so.
