Senior batsman Upul Tharanga was tipped to lead the team in the absence of Angelo Mathews in the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against Australia.
Mathews was forced to stay out after suffering from an injury he sustained in the recently concluded Twenty20 series against South Africa.
Sri Lanka Cricket will most certainly drop senior batsman Dinesh Chandimal and youngster Dhananjaya De Silva as Chamara Kapuegedara and Shehan Jayasuriya attempts to make an anticipated comeback.
Lasith Malinga is set to return after an extended rest due to a long-term knee injury. He was expected to play in the ongoing series against South Africa but dengue fever restricted him from playing.
The official Twenty20 squad will be announced tomorrow.
