Consultant Bowling Coach for Sri Lanka Cricket Chaminda Vaas has announced his resignation from the post effective the 26th of March 2021.

Sri Lanka Cricket issuing a statement informed that he will not be available for the tour of West Indies.

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

SLC in its statement said it is disheartening that Vaas made a sudden and irresponsible decision on the eve of the team’s departure, based on personal monetary gain.

The statement read “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, citing the administration’s refusal to accede to an unjustifiable demand for an increased USD remuneration, in spite of being a contracted employee of Sri Lanka Cricket, already receiving remuneration that is in keeping with his experience, qualifications, and expertise, in addition to which he would have been entitled to the usual USD per diems offered to all members of a traveling squad”.
