What i think is going to happen is that Dilshan is going to be captain till Mathews is ready,imo the best option for SL cricket would have been if Sanga stayed on till Angelo is ready.

Please appoint a caption who can speak in interviews. S.L cricket caption is not only Cricket caption he is an International Ambassodor of the country. The only player who is on line is Angellow we had Maharoof who is no more in the team. Sanga should continue for another year Angellow as VC. I m sure Sanga can understand this.

Speaking English (well) should most certainly not be a pre-requisite for a captain of the Sri Lankan National Cricket Team. First and foremost, the potential candidate's capacity for effective leadership has to be assessed. Yes, it's important to speak for the team in media interviews etc. but you must not make it a pre-requisite because by making it so, you stand a chance of not selecting the best person to actually lead the team on the field, which is more important than sounding good. English skills can be taught later if it is deemed that the captain needs to improve those skills.

It shouldn't be a problem as I voted for Matthews but I'm just making a point :-)

i dont see anyone in the side as potential backups for sanga. Tharanga seems alr8 for his calmness and also he has the personality for it. i voted for angelo in dis, bt with him there is dis uncertainty, he always go through injuries and i believe we have to use him as a batsman, and his bowling have to be occasional.he is the best batsman after sanga and mahela 2day. no question abt it. angelo holds the edge here, bt there is a feeling which selectors m8 go for upul.

To be blunt, there is nobody else to take over. Mathews is too young and struggling with multitude of injuries. However, Smith became captain of SA when he was only 22, even with senior players like Kallis, Gibbs and Boucher in the side.

It would be foolhardy to give the captaincy to Dilshan. Surely, his past misdemeanours and frenetic personality - like Afridi - makes him unsuitable for captaincy.

But Dilshan is the most likely one who will take over, as he already captained the one day side in Zimbabwe with success - and with other miscellaneous activities for good measure.

My pick would be Tharanga as ODI captain with Mathews his deputy.
For T20's Dilshan should be captain and Mathews deputy.
