ESPNcricinfo staff

Chamari Atapattu has been named captain of Sri Lanka Women. She takes over from Shashikala Siriwardene, who relinquished the role earlier this month. Udeshika Prabodhani was named vice-captain.

Twenty-four-year-old Atapattu, a top-order batsman, has played 29 ODIs and 35 Twenty20s. Prabodhani, 28, is a left-arm pacer, with 28 ODIs and 34 T20s to her name.

Siriwardene had resigned following Sri Lanka's average show in the Women's World T20, where they finished eighth. She had led the team since December 2005, and had been in charge for 80 limited-overs matches.
