Sri Lanka has appointed opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan as its new captain after Kumar Sangakkara resigned from the post. Sangakkara and his deputy Mahela Jayawardene resigned earlier this month, in the wake of Sri Lanka's defeat by India in the World Cup final. Dilshan, 34, has previously led Sri Lanka in several Twenty20 and one-day internationals.
