Colombo: Lankan cricket board (SLC) appointed former batsman Charith Senanayake as the manager of their team ahead of the three-Test series against India starting Wednesday.

Senanayake replaces the incumbent manager Hashan Tilakaratne after the later's plea to continue in the post was rejected.

Announcing Senanyake's appointment, SLC media manager Shane Fernando said the decision has been ratified by sports minister Gamini Lokuge.

Senanayake played three Tests and seven ODIs as an opening batsman.
