At the time of writing, former Pakistan head coach, Mickey Arthur, is set to take over on a 2-year contract as Sri Lanka head coach. Will Sri Lanka’s cricketing future help revamp the situation in the near future? Joining his backroom staff will be Grant Flower as batting coach, David Saker as bowling coach (both spin and pace?), and Shane McDermott as fielding coach, in what seems a complete overhaul of the team’s coaching set-up. Arthur is the 11th head coach of the Sri Lanka men’s team during the last eight years, and he will be returning to Pakistan – with the Lankan team where he had been head coach since 2016. However former head coach Chandika Hathurusinghe still appears to be in the saddle albeit in which capacity is another matter!
