Rumesh Ratnayake named Sri Lanka’s interim coach for Zimbabwe series

Former fast bowler Rumesh Ratnayake has been appointed the Sri Lanka men’s national side’s interim coach for their three-ODI series against Zimbabwe, later this month. Sri Lanka have been without a head coach since Mickey Arthur’s contract ended on December 4. Ratnayake will be assisted by former first-class batter Ruwin Peiris, who will be with the team as interim batting coach.

  1. Why is it ‘interim coach’ when we knew Mickey was leaving. The phrase interim is reserved for instances of the unexpected or emergency – say a coach leaves without a warning or notice. It’s a bit like you have no intention of extending your employees contract but you make no place for a replacement! In the real world one would ask you if you have rocks in your head but at SLC this is normal operating procedure…year in year out, no one held accountable!
