Former Sri Lankan speed bowler Chaminda Vass resigned just three days after serving as a bowling coach for the West Indies tour. Sri Lankan Cricket (SLC) confirmed his resignation in a statement. The statement said Vaas told the board of directors that the Sri Lankan team would not be a member of the support team for the West Indies tour. This is very frustrating.
Australian David Sack resigned as Sri Lanka’s bowling coach last Thursday. In 2019, he took over as the bowling coach of the Sri Lanka national team. The 54-year-old coach resigned due to personal reasons. The next day, Friday, Vass was appointed as the new bowling coach. “A request has been made to the Sri Lanka Cricket Board,” Vaas said on Twitter. They don’t want to accept.
In international cricket, 46-year-old Chaminda Vass received 355 wickets in 111 Tests for the country and 400 wickets at 322 ODI. It was one of the best pacemakers of that time. Sri Lanka will play three T20 and ODI and a two-game Test series in the upcoming West Indies tour. The T20 series will start from March 4th. The ODI series will be played starting March 10 and the Test series starting March 21. All matches will be played in Antigua.
