Vaas posts a tweet regarding conflict with SLC and resignation
Former Sri Lankan fast bowler Chaminda Vaas tweeted regarding his resignation as the fast bowling coach of Sri Lankan Cricket team.
Sri Lanka are gearing up for the upcoming tour against West Indies. There Sri Lanka will play three T20Is, three ODIs, and two Tests. But the things are not good around the Sri Lankan team ahead of the tour.
Earlier during the preparation camp, Sri Lankan head coach Micky Arthur and Lahiru Thirimanne were tested positive with coronavirus. Earlier on the day, Sri Lankan fast bowler Lahiru Kumara was tested positive for COVID-19 just hours before the departure.
Another shocking news came in the evening as the fast bowling coach Chaminda Vaas stepped down from the role and he will not be traveling to West Indies as support staff. Chaminda Vaas was given the official appointment just three days before his resignation.
“SLC wishes to inform that former Sri Lanka Cricketer and Consultant Bowling Coach of Sri Lanka Cricket, Chaminda Vaas today (22nd February) announced his resignation from his post effective 26th March 2021, and also informed that he will not be available to tour West Indies as a member of the Support Staff,” SLC announced in an official statement.
It is understood that a financial conflict between the fast bowler and SLC is the reason behind the shocking resignation. Even SLC also quoted that the former Cricketer asked for remuneration from the board and the board is not ready to pay him the amount at this moment.
Meanwhile, the former fast bowler himself clarified what is the reason behind his resignation. He also quoted the same thing in a tweet. Chaminda Vaas shared this via his official social accounts.
I made a humble request to SLC and they turned it down.— Chaminda Vaas (@chaminda_vaas) February 22, 2021
That’s all I can say at the moment.
Justice will prevail!
