Sri Lanka news Chris Adams to work with Sri Lanka : Former Surrey coach Chris Adams has been appointed as a consultant for Sri Lanka for their upcoming tour of England. SLC had conducted a search for a coach with English experience since losing Paul Farbrace's services last week, and have settled on Adams, who played 331 first-class matches, scoring 48 hundreds, in addition to his five Tests and five ODIs. The appointment was made on the recommendation of a three-man panel comprising chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya, head of coaching Jerome Jayaratne and chairman of the cricket committee Ranjit Fernando - the same trio that had also recommended Marvan Atapattu be appointed interim coach. Both the consultant and interim coach appointments were rubber-stamped by the SLC executive committee on Monday, an official release said. Ruwan Kalpage's interim role as assistant coach was also confirmed until the end of South Africa's July tour of Sri Lanka. Adams had become Surrey coach in 2008, but a poor start to th ...
Not sure what to make of the appointments of Peter Moores, Paul Farbrace and Mike Newell to the England cricket management set up. Moores was not a great success last time, even before Pietersen knifed him (see Michael Vaughan's autobiography), but he and Newell have impeccable county cricket pedigrees. Farbrace is a rare example of an English coach who's achieved something noteworthy with a foreign international side. On balance, these are probably as good as we could have hoped for. Sorry for Ashley Giles, but given his record, had he succeeded Flower, the accusations of "jobs for the boys" would have been deafening.
Marvan Atapattu has been named Sri Lanka's head coach following the resignation of Paul Farbrace earlier this week. Ruwan Kalpage, the former Sri Lanka offspinner, has been appointed the interim assistant coach

I just read this,.,.,... is this fair,.! Well done Paul Farbrace! Paul has used Head Coach position for Sri Lanka as to get a job with another larger National Team. This tactics is used by clever employees taking a top position with smaller companies even though with the lesser payment just for their CV so that they could get a job with big companies. We can't blame Paul for that. It is usual nowadays. Wish him all the best with England. SL has a decent batting and bowling coaches at the moment along with senior players currently playing who have good cricket brain where youngsters can learn from. All they need is just some one can address the media whenever is needed particularly when the team is not doing very well. Therefore SL Cricket will not affected by Paul's move. Good Luck Paul with England.

Sri Lanka news Chaos threatens to engulf SL again : For almost 18 years, there was hardly a better time to be a Sri Lanka Cricket fan than the past two weeks. The WT20 party hurtled seamlessly into the Sinhala and Tamil New Year in one uninterrupted sequence of exploding firecrackers, and the nation drew deep from the taste and noise of success. But two weeks is all you get. As the head coach contemplates jumping ship, euphoria has begun to dissolve with the onset of monsoon rains, leaving behind hardier features of the Sri Lanka fan's existence: frustration and uncertainty. The full story behind Paul Farbrace's potential departure is not yet clear but, while he had been well-regarded within the team, unconfirmed tales of discontent with SLC have already begun to emerge. Before taking the job, Farbrace had spoken of an "affinity" for Sri Lanka and its players since his time as the team's assistant coach from 2007 to 2009, and perhaps he will have known that to thrive in Sri Lanka, an affinity for chaos is ...

Something farcical about Sri Lanka's cricket coach Paul Farbrace's eminent escape from a WC winning team...
Sanath cries foul as Farbrace is tipped to jump camp By S.R. Pathiravithana ( Sunday Times) Sri Lanka’s National Coach Paul Farbrace was strongly tipped to be named into the England coaching team yesterday. If so Farbrace will become new England coach Peter Moores’ second-in-command. Moores’ appointment was confirmed by England and WalesCricket Board (ECB) yesterday. But any news relating to Farbrace’s appointment did notsurface from the ECB camp. Moore was named by the ECB to replace Andy Flower who held the job till the Ashes whitewash they experienced Down Under in their last outing there. The 51-year-old who succeeded Flower and Farbrace were low-profile county wicketkeepers during their active days as players. Farbrace impressed ECB bosses enough at the interview earlier this week to be the new number two. However Farbrace who was Sri Lanka’s Assistant coach to Trevor Bayliss earlier was brought down mainly by the efforts of chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya, after incumbent batting coach Ma ...
Peter Moores has been confirmed as head coach of the England cricket team, The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced. The board's managing director Paul Downton unveiled Moores as the chief coach at the Lord's Cricket Ground. He has succeeded Andy Flower while he has also replaced Ashley Giles as the coach of the limited-overs sides. The Sri Lankan Cricket Board has expressed its disappointment with the possibility of head coach, Paul Farbrace, joining the England coaching set-up
One thing the papers seem to have missed is that the three men now in charge of English cricket, Paul Downton, Peter Moores and Paul Farbrace are all ex wicketkeepers. I've played with many keepers and though their observations are often acute, about 80% are MAD. Having said that I've met Paul Downton at a small dinner party and he seemed pretty sensible.
Seemingly Sri Lankan head coach 'Paul Farbrace' has sneaked through from SLC!
Moores' England return confirmed - Alan Gardner - April 19, 2014 Peter Moores has been confirmed as England's new head coach five years after he was sacked from the same position. He returns after being identified as the "outstanding coach of his generation" by Paul Downton, the ECB's managing director, during a three-month recruitment process to find Andy Flower's successor. There was no immediate announcement on whether Paul Farbrace, currently under contract as coach of Sri Lanka, would come in as Moores' assistant, although Downton said the ECB was in "advanced negotiations" over the role. Moores' reappointment means that Ashley Giles, England's limited-overs coach since the start of 2013 and the early favourite to succeed Flower, is out of a job. Downton said that the ECB had interviewed five candidates - Moores, Giles, *** Newell, Mark Robinson and Trevor Bayliss - and that "one person stood out". He described Moores and Alastair Cook, England's Test and ODI captain who was present at the Lord' ...

Farbrace has England sympathy: Sri Lanka coach Paul Farbrace, the last Englishman…
: The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is reportedly considering either former South African coach Gary Kirsten or English cricket director Martyn Moxon to replace Andy Flower as Test coach, instead of Ashley Giles. The ECB would prefer one team director for all forms of the game, which had appeared to make limited-overs coach Giles red-hot favourite, although he is believed to have an uneasy relationship with England Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad and, to a lesser extent, Test captain Alastair Cook. According to the Mirror, although Giles had been heir apparent to Flower since taking over as one-day coach a year ago, however, ECB wants Kirsten even though the former India coach is reluctant to spend a lot of time away from home in South Africa. The other name in the ECB frame is Moxon, one of the most respected directors of cricket in the country with his work at Yorkshire with younger coaches Jason Gillespie and Paul Farbrace being widely noted, the report added.

Chappell front-runner for Lanka coach position Colombo, October 21 Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) may end up appointing former Australian captain Greg Chappell as its new chief coach. The SLC sources said the deadline for the selection had been extended until the end of this month with scales weighing highly in favour of Chappell, who was arguably the world's best batsman in the mid 70s. Chappell, of course, had a troublesome stint with India resulting in his exit after a disastrous 2007 World Cup campaign. His differences with some of the senior Indian players including former skipper Sourav Ganguly were widely reported in the media. Besides Chappell, two more Australians, Shane Duff and little known Michael O'Sullivan are among the short list of candidates. Three Indians, Venkatesh Prasad, Lalchand Rajput and Mohit Soni are also in the fray. Paul Farbrace, who has had a stint with Sri Lanka as the assistant coach and Ian Pont are the Englishmen under consideration. Grant Bradburn, the New Zealand 'A' in charge ...
Yorkshire, through Paul Farbrace's links in Sri Lanka, are hoping to have the help of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene at their camp.
