Colombo:Sri Lankan cricket authorities named Marvan Atapattu to replace Hashan Tillakaratne as captain after the hosts suffered their first whitewash in a home Test series.

Sri Lanka Cricket president Mohan de Silva said they decided to name Atapattu in place of Tillakaratne, who stepped down after Sri Lanka lost the three-Test series 3-0 against Australia in Colombo on Sunday. Atapattu is Sri Lanka's skipper for One-day Internationals.
