Former England men’s cricket head coach Chris Silverwood has been appointed the head coach of Sri Lanka national team.
Sri Lanka board announced on Saturday.
“I am very excited to be on board with Sri Lanka and I cannot wait to get over to Colombo and get started. They have a talented and passionate group of players and I am really looking forward to meeting up with the players and coaching staff very soon,” said Silverwood, accepting the contract.
Silverwood was appointed as Head Coach of England men’s team in October 2019, having previously been the England men’s bowling coach working under then Head Coach Trevor Bayliss when England won the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.
Silverwood was recently in a controversy after England lost Ashes 5-match Ashes series 0-4 against Australia earlier this year.
