Sri Lanka-born Australian coach Dav Whatmore is the other high profile coach to have pulled out from the Lanka Premier League (LPL), it is reliably learnt.
On Saturday, Sri Lanka’s former batting coach Jon Lewis had to pull out from the coaching role.
Whatmore was earlier named as coach for the Colombo Kings team. He will be replaced by another foreigner.
“Whatmore has pulled out for some personal reasons. England’s Kabir Ali will take his place”, a source in Colombo, said exclusively.
