The 2023 World Cup starts on October 5th. Almost all teams have announced the names of their players for this tournament. However, there are many teams that have not yet announced the names of their players. Sri Lanka’s name is also included in these teams. In fact, Sri Lanka has not announced their team for the World Cup yet. However, there is big news surrounding this team ahead of the World Cup.
Recently, the Dashun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka team suffered a crushing defeat in the Asian Cup final. But now there is more bad news for the Sri Lankan fans. According to media reports, Dashun Shanaka’s captaincy could even be revoked. It is believed that Dashun Shanaka will not captain the Sri Lanka team in the World Cup. Media reports claim that the Sri Lankan Cricket Board has decided to remove Dashun Shanaka as captain ahead of the World Cup.
However, questions arise in the minds of cricket fans: If Dashun Shanaka is removed from the captaincy before the World Cup, which player will be named captain of the Sri Lanka team? According to media reports, all-rounder Dhananjay de Silva could take charge of the team in place of Dashun Shanaka. Dhananjay de Silva will be seen as captain at the World Cup. Although no official information has been announced at the time of writing, it is believed that Dashun Shanaka’s departure as captain is almost certain.
