Hathurusingha new Sri Lanka cricket coach

Dec 20, 2017 - 4:08 PM Chandika Hathurusingha has taken charge of Sri Lanka and is looking to replicate the success he found with Bangladesh.

Sri Lanka have been without a coach since Graham Ford resigned six months ago, with fielding coach Nick Pothas filling the role as interim coach since then.

Sri Lanka Cricket authorities hope Hathurusingha's arrival will change the national team's fortunes after a string of losses in recent months.

"My plans with Bangladesh, New South Wales, Sri Lanka A and Moors have all been successful," he said.

"I will be implementing a similar plan. This team has the potential to go two or three steps higher if we go along with a plan."

Hathurusingha, who was contracted with Bangladesh until the 2019 World Cup, resigned to take up the job in his native country.
