Former Sri Lankan cricket coach Tom Moody was all but disappointed with the sacking of his countryman Geoff Marsh who served as the Sri Lankan coach.
The former Australian allrounder had this to say in his Twitter account few minutes ago.
"What a great shame…one needs time & faith….clearly sold down the river."
Geoff Marsh as SLC coach hasnt had a great experience forming a match winning side with two series, one against Pakistan and the current South Afican tour.Sri Lanka lost to Pakistan 1-0 in tests & 4-1 in ODIs & 2-1 in tests and 3-2 in ODIs to South Africa with a humiliating 1st ODI at Paarl where Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 43 runs.
However Sri Lanka achieved their first Test victory in South African soil under him recently and also inspired Sri Lanka to make a massive comeback after the dissapointing failure at Paarl,Sri Lanka came close to winning the 3rd ODI but rain intervened,Sri Lanka chases down consecutive scores access of 300 in the 4th & 5th ODIs set by South Africa, within 3 days under him.
Former South African coach and Dolphin’s coach Graham Ford is tipped for the job as Sri Lanka Cricket coach with an entire overhaul in SLC, including Dilshan replaced probably by Mahela Jayawardene as captain and also the entire SLC selection committee dissolved.
