Mathews resigned as captain from all three formats last July.

Angelo Mathews has been reappointed as the captain of the Sri Lankan limited overs teams as it aims to build a side for next year's cricket World Cup.

Sri Lanka Cricket announced on Tuesday that Dinesh Chandimal will continue to be the test captain while Mathews will take charge of the one-day international and Twenty20 international teams.

Mathews resigned as captain from all three formats last July after Sri Lanka's first-ever one-day international series defeat against Zimbabwe. Since then Sri Lanka has struggled to find a stable captain and has had four in the last six months.

Mathews will lead the team for the upcoming tri-nation series in Bangladesh starting later this month also involving Zimbabwe.
