Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have relieved Dinesh Chandimal of the Twenty20 captaincy and given Lasith Malinga the job until March 2015.

The board also announced that Lahiru Thirimanne will replace Chandimal as ODI vice-captain for the same period of time.

Despite averaging 63.75 in Test cricket, Chandimal has been struggling to find his form in both ODIs and Twenty20 Internationals.

This was definitely evident during the recent World Twenty20, during which he decided to give up the captaincy just prior to the semi-final.
