Heads keep rolling for head coach’s position

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is likely to hire a foreigner to replace Mickey Arthur as head coach of the national team after a decision has been made to negotiate with Graham Ford and Paul Farbrace to join ranks. This was, after the committee appointed to select Arthur’s successor decided to hire a foreigner instead of a local to be the head coach of the men’s national team. Both Ford and Farbrace had involved with Sri Lanka cricket for more than once in their careers.

SLC appointed a six-member committee headed by Mahela Jayawardena, Tom Moody, two members from the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), CEO of SLC and Head of Human Resources to finalise the Head Coach appointment.

  1. Will be lucky to get back Ford who was given a raw deal by SLC and to be honest, someone in SLC should have been held responsible. Ford is a good option if we can get him back and treat him properly. To be honest, one of the changes we should be making is the man-management of professional staff hired by SLC. We cannot have politicians and armatures who have little or no idea about international professionals handling these coached like clowns.

    I am not sure if we are ok with this but Farbrace just dropped us and ran to Eng. I just didn’t enjoy his departure the last time but this could be an ego issue that a real concern.
