Chaminda Vaas Returns As Sri Lanka Bowling Coach After Pay Spat
Sri Lanka's fast bowling coach Chaminda Vaas returned to his job a month after quitting over a pay dispute that was "amicably resolved," the cricket board said Friday.
Former Test player Vaas, 47, quit on the eve of the national team's departure to the West Indies last month. He stepped down days after replacing Australian David Saker.
"Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to inform you that pursuant to a meeting that was held between Mr. Chaminda Vaas... the matters which led to his resignation were amicably resolved," the board said in a statement.
It came a day after Sri Lanka's new director of cricket, Tom Moody, a former Australian Test player, vowed to shake up the national team ahead of the next World Cup.
In his first public remarks since being hired last month by Sri Lanka's cricket board to revive the team, the 55-year-old said on Thursday that he was planning a major cultural shift.
