Sri Lanka appoint ex-England coach Chris Silverwood on a two-year deal

Sri Lanka has hired Chris Silverwood to be the head coach of their men’s cricket team.

Following the crushing Ashes defeat in Australia, former bowler Silverwood stepped down from his two-year post as England men’s head coach in February.

Silverwood has agreed to a two-year contract with Sri Lanka and will lead the team on their two-Test tour to Bangladesh in May.

“I am very excited to be on board with Sri Lanka,” Silverwood said.

“They have a talented and passionate group of players and I am really looking forward to meeting up with the players and coaching staff very soon.”

Before replacing Trevor Bayliss in 2019, Silverwood, 47, was England’s bowling coach.

During his tenure, though, England suffered in Test cricket, including a 4-0 thumping in the Ashes.

Sri Lanka is ranked seventh in the world in Test cricket and recently lost a 2-0 series to India.

Since Mickey Arthur’s departure in December, they have been without a full-time head coach.
