Sri Lanka’s stand-in ODI captain Dinesh Chandimal (R) and Lasith Malinga attend a net practice session in Colombo on July 18, 2013. Dinesh Chandimal will become Sri Lanka’s youngest ever ODI captain, at 23, after being handed the reins for the first two matches against South Africa in Colombo. Regular captain Angelo Mathews was unavailable after earning a two-match suspension for an over-rate offence in the West Indies tri-nation series. South Africa and Sri Lanka will play five ODIs and three Twenty20s in Sri Lanka between July 20 and August 6. © AFP/ LAKRUWAN WANNIARACHCHI
