Regardless of how they dump Chandika Hathurusingha from his head coach position at the end of the current series, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) will hire a new head coach within the next fortnight targeting the home series against New Zealand in August.
Will this change Sri Lanka’s cricketing landscape? That’s anybody’s guess. A cursory look at the game’s recent history proves that short-sighted moves such as these have only deepened Sri Lanka’s woes and challenges at international level. Sri Lanka has had three coaches since 2016. None of them completed their full term.
