Sri Lanka name Ratnayake interval mentor, Hathurusingha’s future hazy

Sri Lanka’s head cricket coach Chandika Hathurusingha takes part in a press conference in Colombo on July 8, 2019. – Hathurusingha insisted on July 8 he would remain Sri Lanka’s cricket coach despite pressure to step down after their World Cup exit

Previous quick bowler Rumesh Ratnayake has been selected Sri Lanka’s break mentor in front of their home test arrangement against New Zealand, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said on Wednesday.

SLC won’t, in any case, to explain whether head mentor Chandika Hathurusingha had been sacked.

Hathurusingha, designated in December 2017, has been scrutinized for the group’s poor ongoing exhibitions, including the current year’s Cricket World Cup wherein Sri Lanka were thumped out in the gathering stage.

“We’ve been watching the mentor’s presentation for over 18 months. In light of that we’ve taken this choice,” SLC President Shammi Silva told correspondents.

“I was additionally in the board that enrolled Hathurusingha, and we’ve committed a few errors. Be that as it may, on the off chance that we are to do directly by cricket in (the) future, we need to address those missteps.”

Silva said Hathurusingha had been sent a logical letter and SLC would hang tight 14 days for his reaction. He would not clarify the issues with the mentor, saying it was a “legitimate issue”.

Hathurusingha affirmed he had gotten a letter.

“To the extent I’m concerned, my agreement with SLC is still there,” Hathurusingha told ESPNcricinfo.

“The letter doesn’t utter a word about end of agreement or anything like that.”

Sri Lanka play New Zealand in a two-test arrangement beginning on August 14.
