Johannesburg, Sept. 8 (ANI): Jerome Jayaratne has been named interim head coach of Sri Lanka cricket team for next month’s home series against West Indies.
Jayaratne, who had been the head of coaching at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), was appointed to guide the team after Marvan Atapattu resigned following a 1-2 defeat against India in the just concluded series, Sport24 reported.
India registered their first Test series win on Sri Lankan soil in 22 years after defeating the hosts by 117 runs on the fifth day of the decisive third and final match in Colombo.
Sri Lanka will play two Tests, three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches against the West Indies, which starts on October 1. (ANI)
