Colombo: In the wake of Sri Lanka's devastating loss to India in the Asia Cup final, speculation is rife that Dasun Shanaka, the captain of the Sri Lankan cricket team, may step down from his leadership role just days before the upcoming World Cup.
The Asia Cup final, hosted at the R Premadasa Stadium in Sri Lanka, witnessed the Sri Lankan team crumbling against the Indian pace attack.
Facing a stadium packed with fervent spectators in Colombo, the entire Sri Lankan batting lineup managed a mere 50 runs, a total that India effortlessly chased down.
Mohammad Siraj led the onslaught, taking six wickets, while Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah played pivotal roles in dismantling the Sri Lankan team.
During a post-match press conference, Shanaka expressed gratitude to the fans for their overwhelming support and offered apologies for the team's dismal performance.
Reports emerging from various media outlets now suggest that Dasun Shanaka may relinquish his captaincy duties ahead of the World Cup, scheduled to commence on October 5th next month.
Any formal announcement regarding his resignation is expected to come from the Sri Lankan Cricket Board.
