Kumar Sangakkara has stepped down as captain of the ODI and T20 teams but has offered to continue as the Test captain on an interim basis for the forthcoming series with England and Australia if this is considered helpful for the new captain.

Tillakaratne Dilshan and Angelo Mathews are the front-runners to take charge of the limited-overs' sides, while Thilan Samaraweera is being discussed as an option to lead the Test team.

Sangakkara was one of the highest scorers in the 2011 World Cup and scored 48 in their defeat to India in the final.
