Adams To Help Sri Lankans
Former England international and Surrey coach Chris Adams will take on a consultancy role with Sri Lanka for their upcoming tour of England.
The all-new coaching team of Marvan Atapattu (head coach) and Ruwan Kalpage (assistant coach) will be joined by Adams, who also led Sussex with distinction as a player.
During his time with Sussex - who were then coached by England's head coach Peter Moores - he led them to the County Championship three times and the domestic one-day competition.
Adams, who played five Tests and five One-Day Internationals for his country, retired in 2008 to coach Surrey, a position he was sacked from in 2013.
While Adams will work with the Sri Lankans on a short-term basis, Atapattu and Kalpage have been appointed until the end of South Africa's tour to Sri Lanka later this year.
They were brought in to replace Paul Farbrace, who took up a job as Moores' assistant with England.
Sri Lanka play a Twenty20 International, five ODIs and two Tests against England between 20th May and 24th June.
