Sri Lanka will continue to employ a fourth different captain of the tour when Thilina Kandamby takes charge for the Twenty20 International against England on Saturday, 25th June.

He was an unexpected choice as vice-captain for the limited overs series but will lead the side as Tillakaratne Dilshan has not recovered sufficiently from a fractured finger.

Dilshan suffered a hairline fracture when he was struck by Chris Tremlett during the course of his innings of 193 in the second Test at Lord's and subsequently missed the final match at The Rose Bowl.

In his absence, Kumar Sangakkara took charge while Thilan Samaraweera also led the side for the tour game against Essex, making it four captains since they arrived in England.

Dilshan is, however, expected to be fit to play in the first One-Day International on 2th June at The Kia Oval.

The Twenty20 is in Bristol and Sri Lanka prepared with a 57-run win over Worcestershire in a 50-over game at New Road.
