Experienced Lahiru Thirimanne and Dasun Shanaka have been named as captains of the Sri Lanka One Day International and Twenty20 sides respectively for the tour of Pakistan.

The development comes as a number of senior players refused to leave for Pakistan citing security concerns.

Sri Lanka will be touring Pakistan from the 27th of September to the 9th of October to play three ODIs and three T20i matches.
