Mathews favourite to lead T20 side in Shanaka’s absence

Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews

As captain-designate Dasun Shanaka is likely to miss the T20 leg of the West Indies series due to a visa issue, Sri Lanka could bring in one of the three seniors to lead the side.

The names of former skippers Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera have all been discussed but the scale is in Mathews’ favour. For this, however Mathews has to give his consent.
