Consultant Bowling Coach of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), Chaminda Vaas has announced his resignation from his post with effect from March 26, 2021, a SLC media release stated yesterday.

The former Sri Lanka cricketer also informed SLC that he will not be available to tour the West Indies as a member of the Support Staff.

Vaas’ resignation comes hours before the team was scheduled to depart for the West Indies.

“It is particularly disheartening to note that in an economic climate such as the one facing the entire globe right now, Vaas has made this sudden and irresponsible move on the eve of the team’s departure, based on personal monetary gain,” the media release added further.

“The Management of SLC, and indeed the entire nation hold Vaas in high esteem as a cricketer who has excelled for his country. His years of yeoman service have been appreciated and rewarded over the years both in status and in kind.”

“In such circumstances, it is extremely disheartening that a legend such as Chaminda Vaas has resorted to holding the administration, the cricketers, and indeed the game at ransom by handing in his resignation at the eleventh hour.”
