Chaminda Vaas, who is the highest wicket taker among the pace bowlers, is currently the U-19 bowling coach. With all the goings on, Vaas has now been elevated to the position of the Emerging Team coach.
Whether Vaas will make a good fist of his new coaching role is up in the air. He certainly has the credentials for the job. We tend to look on batsmen favourably when selecting the head coach. The role is reversed here as Vaas was primarily a bowler.
What is disturbing is the frequency with which coaches are hired and fired and the damaging effect it would have on their charges.
