All-rounder Thisara Perera has called for a change in the limited over captaincy in order to bring in unity and stability in the national side ahead of this year’s cricket World Cup in England. In a letter addressed to Sri Lanka Cricket CEO Ashley de Silva, Perera added there is no environment of unity in the side since Lasith Malinga took over the captaincy ahead of the recent New Zealand series.
“We are at the verge of a world cup. Our focus and attention should be on performing well at it instead of bickering over social media on pointless issues. The team is in dire need of steady leadership and guidance. Importantly as environment of unity is needed in the dressing room. Something we lack very desperately at the moment. These issues need ractifying ahead of the World Cup,” Perera wrote in his letter.
