Steve Rixon appointed fielding coach of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka have appointed former Australia wicketkeeper Steve Rixon as new coach of the cricket team. On the appointment, Sri Lanka Cricket CEO Ashley de Silva on Saturday said that Rixon will help the team move forward. Sri Lankan cricket is going through turbulent times both on and off the field and the latest staff appointment will be a boost to the team’s preparations for the ICC World Cup 2019. Rixon will replace Manoj Abeywickrema, who took over the responsibility following the departure of Nic Pothas as a fielding consultant in April this year.
