Ratnayake named interim coach for Cricket

Jul 15, 2011 5:15:40 AM - itnnews.lk

Rumesh Ratnayake has been appointed as the interim coach for the Sri Lanka Cricket team for the Australian tour.

Sri Lanka Cricket’s interim committee chairman, Upali Dharmadasa said they have appointed Ratnayake only for the Australian tour that begins next month, because there is no time to look for someone else for the position.

This decision had to be made, due to the reason that former Australian cricketer Stuart Law stepped down from his position as the interim coach for Sri Lanka’s tour of England stepped down at the conclusion of the tour.

47 year old former Sri Lanka fast bowler Rumesh Ratnayake who has played Tests and ODIs for Sri Lanka is currently working as a development officer with the Asian Cricket Council.
