Former Sri Lanka fast-bowler Chaminda Vaas was appointed as Fast Bowling Coach for the tour of West Indies, a temporary replacement for Australian David Saker, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said.
Saker, who joined Sri Lanka's coaching backroom in December 2019, tendered his resignation citing personal reasons, SLC announced on Thursday.
Vaas has previously worked with SLC in a coaching capacity, when he was appointed as fast bowling coach in 2013, but his two-year contract was not extended on its conclusion.
"He will go on the West Indies tour," SLC CEO Ashley de Silva said.
"We will have internal discussions to decide on a permanent replacement," de Silva said.
Vaas has also been a consultant fast-bowling coach with Sri Lanka.
