Nic Pothas will be remained as the Head Coach of Sri Lanka for the upcoming Tour of India, Cricket Age has reliably learnt.
“Even though Sri Lanka is on a losing streak since the Pothas appointment as head coach, feedback from the players is positive” a top SLC Official told Cricket Age.
SLC had appointed Pothas as the interim coach after Graham Ford stepped down following the debacle in Champions trophy in June.
During Pothas tenure, Sri Lanka record has been poor, particularly in ODI Cricket. The team has lost ODI series 5-0 against India and Pakistan and has also lost the series against Zimbabwe.
Moreover, recently he irked SLC as well, with his decision to skip Lahore T20I, scheduled to be played on tomorrow at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.
However, as there is little time left for the Indian series, the Board has decided to be continued with Pothas.
Sri Lanka to play three tests, three ODIs and three T20s in 37 days long tour of India.
The first test will be played at Historic Eden Garden, Kolkata from 16th November. Three match ODI series will be played on 10th, 13th and 17th December. The tour will end up with three t20 matches, as first match is scheduled to be played on 20th December in Cuttack.
