Muscat Daily - - SPORTS - Cricinfo

Colombo, Sri Lanka - Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has ap­pointed for­mer quick Rumesh Rat­nayake to the top fast-bowl­ing coach­ing job in the coun­try.

As SLC's head of fast bowl­ing, Rat­nayake will work closely with Sri Lanka's high-per­for­mance cen­tre, and will over­see the work of the board's other fast-bowl­ing coaches, in­clud­ing who­ever is posted with the na­tional team. He may not him­self work and tour with the Sri Lanka side, how­ever.

One of the fastest Sri Lanka bowlers in the 1980s, Rat­nayake had taken 73 Test wick­ets at an av­er­age of 35.10 dur­ing his play­ing ca­reer.
