Sri Lanka on Thursday appointed Tillakaratne Dilshan as skipper for Australia's visit next month, but did not name a deputy.
Dilshan will lead in the three Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20 games, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a statement. The first game is a T20 clash on August 6.
Sri Lanka's board has reportedly decided not to use the Decision Review System (DRS) during the upcoming series against Australia, despite the ICC last month making the DRS mandatory for Tests and one-day internationals. The new rule does not take effect until October 1, meaning Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) can save some money by refusing to have umpire reviews in place for Australia's seven-week tour that starts in August.
Former Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has cautioned Australia not to consider a boycott of a tour to his country, and does not share the view expressed by almost 3000 people in a poll conducted by the The Age
