Sri Lanka’s former left-arm fast bowler Chaminda Vaas has resigned from his post after just three days as Sri Lanka’s new bowling coach. Vas’s resignation came just hours before the team left for the West Indies tour. Sri Lanka have three T20s, three ODIs and two Tests to play on this tour.
Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement that the entire world is currently in financial crisis and in such a situation it is unacceptable for Sri Lanka to make a sudden decision one day before the West Indies tour for Vos’s personal benefit.

It said that Sri Lanka cricket management and the whole country had great respect for Vaas as a cricketer, but when it came to serving the country, he backed down. It’s pretty unfortunate for sure. Following his poor performance against South Africa and England recently, Vaas was appointed as Sri Lanka’s fast bowling coach to replace Australia’s David Secker last week.
In his international career, he has taken 355 Test wickets in 111 matches and 400 ODIs in 322 matches. Vaas, who was one of the top fast bowlers in the country, has also resigned as the coach of the SLC academy, a board official said.
