‘Discarded’ Hathurusingha likely to be named Sri Lanka U19 or A Team Coach

The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) is mulling over demoting discarded national team coach Chandika Hathurasingha as A team or U19 coach, Cricket Age exclusively learns.

Following Sri Lanka’s disappointing World Cup, where they finished in sixth place with only 3 wins in 9 games, the SLC had decided to remove support staff, including head coach Chandika Hathurasingha from the national team setup.

Accordingly, following a special directive from Sports Ministry, Hathurusingha is currently facing a suspension while fast bowling coach Romesh Rathnayake shouldered responsibility as interim coach during recently concluded New Zealand Series.
