Sports Vaas resigns as bowling consultant

Former Sri Lanka pacer Chaminda Vaas on Monday decided to resign from his post as Sri Lanka’s bowling consultant. Vaas has also informed that he will not be available to tour West Indies as a member of the support staff.

The resignation came hours before the team was scheduled to depart for West Indies. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said that Vaas resigned over a financial dispute.

“It is particularly disheartening to note that in an economic climate such as the one facing the entire globe right now, Vaas has made this sudden and irresponsible move on the eve of the team’s departure, based on personal monetary gain,” SLC said in an official statement.

However, Chaminda Vass tweeted: “I made a humble request to SLC and they turned it down. That’s all I can say at the moment. Justice will prevail!”

Last week, Vaas was named fast-bowling coach for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

During his illustrious career, Vaas took 355 Test wickets from 111 matches and 400 ODI wickets from 322 games.
