Angelo Mathews has admitted he was not mentally prepared to take over as T20 captain after Lasith Malinga resigned due to his fitness problems.

Mathews said he could not refuse the leadership offered by Sri Lanka Cricket.

Mathews is Sri Lanka's Test and ODI captain, Malinga was appointed as T20 captain after Sri Lanka won the 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh.

He played only one match this year - the Asia Cup opener - in which he was named Man of the Match for taking 4 for 26 against UAE.
