Chairman of Selectors Aravinda de Silva and selector Kumar Sangakkara met with the media in their first press conference since being appointed selectors on March 8, 2016, in Colombo. Defending champions Sri Lanka said Lasith Malinga was stepping down as captain of their ICC World Twenty20 side after the team's disastrous Asia Cup showing, with Angelo Mathews to skipper the team in India. The announcement comes only hours after Sri Lanka's sports minister sacked the country's cricket selectors and appointed a new panel headed by de Silva. © AFP PHOTO
