|Vaas,Murali lined up for Sri Lanka coaching roles|
“They are two of our best products”
Sri Lanka Cricket is considering Muttiah Muralitharan and Chaminda Vaas for spin and fast bowling coaching positions respectively, SLC chief executive Ajit Jayasekara said.
“They are two of our best products, and have had huge success all over the world,” said Jayasekara.
“We are looking to tap that knowledge and make use of it for the betterment of cricket in Sri Lanka. The fact that they don’t have coaching qualifications isn’t a big issue when you consider how much they have to offer.”
“I have finished my discussions with the board and they will come back to me with a decision,” said
Vaas, who took 400 ODI and 355 Test wickets during a 15-year career before retiring in 2010.
Informed sources said former Lankan pace bowler Chaminda Vaas would replace Champika Ramanayake as the country’s bowling coach after the conclusion of the Australian tour.
The 40-year-old Muralitharan is the most successful bowler in the history of the game, with 800 and 534 scalps in Test and ODI cricket respectively.
He continues to play at domestic level, including a recent stint with the Melbourne Renegades in Australia’s Twenty20 Big Bash League.
