    Good move.

    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

    aj Monday, 28 January 2013 07:20 AM

    if this is true .........it will be great for SL cricket..........Need Guys like this to mentor the young up and coming fast bowlers..................All the best Vass............

    shan Tuesday, 29 January 2013 06:45 AM

    Heman Monday, 28 January 2013 07:48 AM

    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.

    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

    Naari Monday, 28 January 2013 02:49 PM

    Ela Malli Monday, 28 January 2013 11:13 AM

    Marvan has been the batting coach for the last 2 years..welcome welcome looks like you were asleep for a while

    cowdrey Tuesday, 29 January 2013 10:43 AM

    if it isn't broken why fix it?

    Most Wanted Monday, 28 January 2013 08:02 AM

    Best decision ever made.

    Dr.Mervin Silva Monday, 28 January 2013 11:26 AM

    mamath meka agayanawa..ohama yang vasee...

    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 .

    sisila Monday, 28 January 2013 11:31 AM

    Malinga for one.... If you dont know keep your comments yourself...

    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

    what ever it may have decided it is a good decision for the country cricket

    lankan Monday, 28 January 2013 08:20 AM

    Congrats JOE

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    trevi Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:22 AM

    every country got high qualified coaches their national teams and why we taking not qualified vass for this important role. let champaka do his good work.

    kolla Monday, 28 January 2013 08:35 AM

    Excellent move !!!

    ahmeer Monday, 28 January 2013 08:35 AM

    SudhuGemba Monday, 28 January 2013 08:37 AM

    He was a master of control and reverse swing! Im sure we will see his influence in a few months/years!

    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

    gune Tuesday, 29 January 2013 08:35 AM

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

    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.
