Vaas to continue as SL’s fast bowling consultant; dispute ‘amicably resolved’ with SLC

Chaminda Vaas is set to continue as the fast bowling consultant of Sri Lanka after patching up with the board. The former fast bowler had announced his resignation just three days after taking up the role, and right before Sri Lanka’s departure for their ongoing tour in the Caribbean.

However, Sri Lanka Cricket stated that the situation had been “amicably resolved”.

“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to inform you that pursuant to a meeting that was held between Mr. Chaminda Vaas and the Management Team of Sri Lanka Cricket, the matters which led to his resignation were amicably resolved.

Mr. Vaas withdrew his submitted Letter of Resignation and agreed to continue as the Fast Bowling Consultant to Sri Lanka Cricket, the position which he held prior to his resignation,” read a statement from SLC.

Vaas and SLC had voiced their disagreements in public at the time of Vaas’ resignation in February. While SLC had said in a statement that Vaas was “holding the administration, the cricketers, and indeed the game at ransom” by announcing his resignation, the former pacer had put out a tweet that read, “I made a humble request to SLC and they turned it down. That’s all I can say at the moment. Justice will prevail!”

Sri Lanka’s ongoing tour in the West Indies ends on April 2nd after which they are scheduled to host Bangladesh for two Tests beginning on April 21.
