Kumar Sangakkara has stepped down as captain of Sri Lanka’s ODI and T20 teams but has offered to continue as the Test captain on an interim basis for the forthcoming series against England and Australia “if this is considered helpful for the new captain”.
IPL T20 2011: Yuvraj Singh was Tuesday named the captain of Pune Warriors for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Yuvraj, who is having a good World Cup so far, is one of the four domestic players in the side. The other three are Ashish Nehra, Robin Uthappa and Murali Karthik.
Afghanistan XI's new one-day and Twenty20 skipper Hamid Hassan will face his first test in his new role very soon. Hassan, a right-arm fast bowler, will lead his side to United Arab Emirates to play two one-dayers against a Kenya XI and Canada XI at Sharjah in February.
