New Delhi. Sri Lankan cricket team’s performance in T20 World Cup 2024 was very poor. Led by Wanindu Hasaranga, the team lost matches against Bangladesh and South Africa in the group stage, while the match against Nepal was washed out due to rain. Confusion continues in the cricket board after the team returned to Sri Lanka. After veteran player Mehla Jayawardene, now the head coach has also resigned. Former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene was made the team’s batting consultant coach. Silverwood also stepped down as head coach within 12 hours of Jayawardene’s resignation.

On stepping down as head coach Chris Silverwood said, ‘Being an international coach means that after consulting my family, I have decided to return home and spend time with my family. I am proud to be a part of Sri Lankan cricket. I am leaving with many good memories.
