Allrounder Chamani Seneviratna has been named captain of the Sri Lankan team for the ICC World Twenty20, starting in May in the Caribbean. Wicketkeeper Dilani Manodara has been appointed her deputy.

Sri Lanka have made five changes to their squad of 14, from the one picked in the inaugural version of the tournament last year in England. The captain Seneviratna is one of them; former captain Shashikala Siriwardene, batsman Dedunu Silva and left-arm spinner Suwini de Alwis have been picked after being dropped last year, reportedly due to reasons of indiscipline; and the fifth change is allrounder Chandi Wickramasinghe.

Chamari Polgampola, who led Sri Lanka in the World Twenty20 last year, has been included in the list of standby players.

Sri Lanka take on West Indies in an ODI and a Twenty20 series before the World Twenty20.

Sri Lanka women's squad: Chamani Seneviratna (capt), Dilani Manodara (wk and vice capt), Inoka Galagedara, Shashikala Siriwardene, Dedunu Silva, Suwini de Alwis, Chamari Atapattu, Ehsani Kaushalya, Sandamali Dolawatta, Sripali Weerakkody, Udeshika Prabodhani, Deepika Rasangika, Hiruka Fernando, Chandi Wickramasinghe

Standby players: Chamari Polgampola, Gayathri Kariyawasam, Rose Fernando, Sumudu Fernando
