Mirpur: Considering his forgettable show in the series so far, Sri Lanka T20 skipper Dinesh Chandimal decided to opt out of the crucial semi-final clash against West Indies in the ICC World Twenty20.
Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed the news through their official account on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Most of the Sri Lankan batsmen have struggled with the bat in the tournament so far, and Chandimal being the captain had to make the tough call, as his willow produced just 26 runs in two innings.
Chandimal also missed Sri Lanka`s final group match against the Black Caps, after he was suspended for one game due to Sri Lanka being found guilty of maintaining a slow over rate for the second time inside 12 months under his leadership.
