Sanath Jayasuriya tenders his resignation Featured

Chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya yesterday (08) tendered his resignation to Sri Lanka Cricket.

He is due to return today from South Africa, where he accompanied the team presently on an ODI series.

Reports say Jayasuriya has resigned in protest against authorities’ having changed the ‘A’ team he had selected for an England tour.

At a media briefing yesterday, the team’s captain was notably absent.

Team coach Avishka Gunawardena said he had been given a squad of 20 players, but could give the names of Kasun Rajitha and Lahiru Gamage only to the journalists.

SLC’s head of coaches Jerome Jayaratne too, was present at the media briefing.
