Vaas takes over from Ramanayake as bowling coach

Chaminda Vaas will replace Champaka Ramanayake as Sri Lanka’s bowling coach. Ramanayake, who resigned after the series against Zimbabwe, cited “personal reasons” for ending a two-year stint following his reappointment in 2015.

SLC made Vaas’ appointment official on Friday, saying the former fast bowler “will guide the pace attack for the India tour of Sri Lanka”. Since August 2016, Vaas has been working with Sri Lanka’s feeder squads into the national team.

Ramanayake has said he is considering several options for his next assignment. ESPNcricinfo has learned that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is firm in its interest to bring him back under its wing. It is not clear what role he is being offered but there’s a strong suggestion, especially with Courtney Walsh’s appointment as Bangladesh’s bowling coach, that Ramanayake will be assigned to the BCB’s high performance unit.
