Dasun Shanaka will lead Sri Lanka in the limited-overs series against India, replacing Kusal Perera who is sidelined with a shoulder injury, the country’s cricket board said on Friday.

Since Perera took over in May, Sri Lanka have lost all three series and Sanaka had been tipped by the local media to become Sri Lanka’s 10th one-day captain in the last five years.

“Kusal Perera will not be able to take part in the ODI and the T20I series against India owing to an injury,” Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a statement before announcing the squad.

The wicketkeeper-batsman suffered a right shoulder sprain in training ahead of Sunday’s first India one-dayer, the SLC said.
