Former Sri Lankan cricket team fast bowler Chaminda Vaas has resigned from the post of fast bowling coach of the national team due to a salary dispute with the country’s cricket board. He was appointed to this post three days earlier.
Voss resigned just before the team left for the tour of the West Indies. A senior Sri Lankan cricket (SLC) official said, “We could not agree on their terms so they resigned.”
SLC said irresponsible steps
SLC said in a statement, “It is disappointing that in view of the economic climate around the world, Vass took a sudden and such irresponsible step on the eve of the team’s departure for personal financial gain.”
Kohli is against tampering with Test cricket
Vas was elected in place of Sekar
Vas was appointed as the Sri Lankan fast bowling coach in place of David Secker of Australia last week after the team’s poor performances against South Africa and England recently.
To leave for the Windies tour on Monday
Vaas was scheduled to leave the West Indies with the team on Monday for a series of two Tests, besides a series of three T20 and three ODIs. A board official said Vass, who was among the top fast bowlers in the country, has also resigned as the coach of SLC Academy.
