SLC hoping bigger role from Mahela Jayawardene moving forward

News is making rounds that Sri Lanka has tapped Mahela Jayawardene and several ex-players – Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekera, and Rangana Herath – to replace head coach Mickey Arthur who will join Derbyshire CCC early next month after the two West Indies Test series. The 44-year-old Jayawardene worked on improving the morale of the Sri Lankan team during the latest T20 World Cup. He is also serving as a consultant for the U-19 team in an ‘honorary’ capacity. However, he doesn’t prefer a full-time assignment and wants ‘clarity’.
