The 47-year-old former England coach said so at the maiden press conference with Sri Lankan media yesterday at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium. “Actually I have been in touch with Sri Lankan players for nearly two weeks and they are only red bowl players (long format). It is a pleasure for me to join as head coach for the Sri Lanka team, added Silverwood. Now my home is Sri Lanka and I have a good supporting staff to continue my work. It’s a big challenge working with Sri Lankan players, said former right-arm paceman Chris Silverwood who played for 6 Tests and 7 ODIs for England.
