    bring out Hathurusuinghe from down under to replace foreign coach.....

    SENNA Monday, 28 January 2013 12:00 PM

    What a relief. It is never too late. Champaka did well and high time for him to leave along with Mavan if Mavan can take a good decision for the sake of cricket .

    ano Tuesday, 29 January 2013 06:27 AM

    take vass also for some role in the fast bowling dept but let champaka to continue his good work.

    Rizwan Monday, 28 January 2013 10:05 AM

    Correct choice

    Viraj V Monday, 28 January 2013 09:59 AM

    Very very very goood.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 28 January 2013 09:48 AM

    Finally, real genuine talent recognized but for that Vaas had to do a spell as a bowling coach to NZ team and show his colours. Anyway, one of the best decisions made by SL Cricket in a long time.

    Fazli Monday, 28 January 2013 09:48 AM

    One would not forget his 0/4 wickets against Bangladesh in South Africa! He is such a talent !

    Dr.Talk Monday, 28 January 2013 09:27 AM

    Wow...This is an inswinger! Vass the man...However, Champaka did a good job..we must keep him in the team...

    Lobo Monday, 28 January 2013 08:58 AM

    Finally some sense. Surprising he wasn't appointed earlier despite being one of our best bowlers during his day.

    shan Tuesday, 29 January 2013 06:28 AM

    we lost test in aus but we level one dayers and won t20mainly because our fast bowlers who is the fast bowling coach......rama

    shan Tuesday, 29 January 2013 06:29 AM

    rama the best.

    shan Tuesday, 29 January 2013 06:45 AM

    let champakacontinue his good work.

    gOBBAYA Tuesday, 29 January 2013 07:14 AM

    Good Move,but champaka also doing a great job for the country.i guess we need both of them to strengthen the sri lankan bowling squad.

    indian Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:02 AM

    SLC eating your own words, when the star is good for NZ why not for these youngsters ? Vaas is the Best.

    dom Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:25 AM

    take new batting coach not the bowling coach. because our batting is fail some time.

    vije Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:30 AM

    champaka is a very high qualified fast bowling coach with coaching qualifications.he got very good international coaching experiance.

    ravi Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:33 AM

    sanath you are good for chief selector so let rama continue his great work.

    gune Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:35 AM

    cowdrey Tuesday, 29 January 2013 10:43 AM

    if it isn't broken why fix it?

    gune Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:12 AM

    vass is good for running a acadamy but not for this very important job.

    chami Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:16 AM

    champaka is level3 high qualified fast bowling coach but vass just a bowler.

    chami Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:18 AM

    for national team we need high qualified coach not a fast bowler with no qualification.rama the best.

    trevi Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:22 AM

    jcuthbert Monday, 28 January 2013 07:16 AM

    Long overdue to replace champaka. Just have a look at him during matches. Sitting and sipping all the time and has reaped huge benefits from sri lanka cricket for years. Who are the genuine fast bowlers he has produced ? All who get injured match after match. Furthermore I would like to see either the Chairman or Secretary pay a surprise visit to the operations division and see for themselves what these coaches are upto - just gossip all day. What a good choice to appoint Vas. We will definitely reap the benefits

    Ranjit Wicks Monday, 28 January 2013 07:15 AM

    Good move.

    joytheo Monday, 28 January 2013 07:04 AM

    it is a good news for the Sri Lankan cricket team. Finally, SLC had decided to do something good for the team. Good Luck Vaasy..

    Hurahh ! Monday, 28 January 2013 06:59 AM

    Great News.

    samanmali Monday, 28 January 2013 06:57 AM

    lk Monday, 28 January 2013 06:54 AM

    gooooooooooood! at last.

    sk Monday, 28 January 2013 06:52 AM

    SUPER NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    batpala Monday, 28 January 2013 06:44 AM

    Good move. SL bowling unit need some fresh ideas. However give Ramanayake a role to nature the young bowlers at the school level. He can use years of his experience to spot and nature good talent.

    Raj Monday, 28 January 2013 06:44 AM

    Good Move...................

    Amintha Monday, 28 January 2013 06:42 AM

    This is a great news for all cricket loving public. Dear Vass, please create a talent pool comprising young school leavers.

    Podiman Monday, 28 January 2013 06:43 AM

    reader Monday, 28 January 2013 07:48 AM

    Still can remember how well vass used to bowl in Sarjah and how well ramanayaka got hammered around the park in sarjah from sachin

    Ela Malli Monday, 28 January 2013 07:52 AM

    Hmmm..First Sanath and now Vaas...Sumathipala is getting all his guys into SLC...Thilanga is probably getting ready to contest SLC elections if Arjuna contests

    dilip Monday, 28 January 2013 07:56 AM

    great news....

    Kondebandapucheena Monday, 28 January 2013 07:58 AM

    Things are getting in to right direction finally

    Most Wanted Monday, 28 January 2013 08:02 AM

    Best decision ever made.

    rosa Monday, 28 January 2013 08:10 AM

    Good decision. Also Marvan should be batting coach. He sowed his vision his speech at waters edge recently .

    Jeewan Monday, 28 January 2013 08:16 AM

    Vasy worked hard during his time to be the best. So he has the knack to produce a great set of fast bowlers.

    Surain Monday, 28 January 2013 08:16 AM
