Can Silverwood be the silver lining for Sri Lanka?

When Chris Silverwood succeeded Paul Grayson as Essex’s Head Coach in 2016, the English county was in doldrums. They had been relegated to Division Two for a while and there was little hope for the Chelmsford club, half hour’s train journey from London King’s Cross Station. Silverwood with his hands on approach and close rapport with the players turned things around for Essex. A county that didn’t have many stars was promoted to Division One in his first year in charge having won the Division Two title.

  1. The Silver lining for SLC is the current protests which is calling for an end to the goons and looting. Like our country, our cricket has been plagued by the same politicos playing the same old card of looting and its time. Silverwood like Marsh and Ford and Arthur and and and, will come and go but they cannot fix a broken car unless the engine is sorted out once and for all. We wait in hope and have called for an overhaul from years ago.
