Former Sri Lanka fast bowler Pramodya Wickramasinghe will head a newly appointed six-member selection committee that will oversee selections for both the men’s and women’s cricket teams. Romesh Kaluwitharana, Hemantha Wickramaratne, Varuna Waragoda, Uvais Karnain and Thalika Gunaratne round out the panel.

There has been a vacuum in terms of team selection ever since Ashantha De Mel resigned as chief selector following Sri Lanka’s home defeat by England last year. Following De Mel’s departure the selection process had been undertaken by Wickramasinghe and Chaminda Mendis, with Wickramasinghe even accompanying the Sri Lanka team on their recent tour of the West Indies as the selector-on-tour.
