SL vs India Test Series

DM_20170725_A028-1Former Sri Lankan batsman Hashan Tillakaratne has been roped in by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) as a temporary Batting Coach. His role with the Lankan side will be at least until the end of the Indian series.

Sri Lanka Cricket Manager Asanka Gurusinha said: “Hashan has been with us since the recent Test match against Zimbabwe, actually. At this stage, for all the Tests he will be a batting coach. 

“Most probably after the Indian series, we’ll discuss with Coach Nic Pothas and see what’s happening from there. With all his experience, there is a lot the batsmen can learn from him.”

It may be recalled that Tillakaratne had earlier performed the role of a National Selector, between January 2013 and April 2015. 

Recently Chaminda Vaas was also named as the team’s Bowling Coach after Champaka Ramanayake stepped down from the role. (Agencies)
