Sri Lanka appointed a six-member cricket selection panel on Thursday ahead of the two-match Bangladesh tour of the island.
Earlier this year, chief selector Ashantha de Mel resigned after the national team lost both Tests of the two-match home series against England.
The new panel will be headed by former Test player Pramodya Wickramasinghe, the cricket board said in a statement.
Others in the panel are: Romesh Kaluwitharana, Hemantha Wickramaratne, Varuna Waragoda, S. H. U Karnain and Thilaka Nilmini Gunarathne.
Bangladesh arrive in Sri Lanka next week to play two Test matches in Kandy.
