Mahela Jayawardena, who is working for Sri Lanka Cricket as the ‘Consultant Coach,’ has not been tasked with the job of touring with the National Team, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said.
His functions as the ‘Consultant Coach’ are to be in charge of the overall cricketing element of the national teams and to provide invaluable strategic support for the players and management teams at the High-Performance Center, the SLC said in a statement.
Accordingly, Jayawardena works on coach and player development programs, the strengthening of domestic cricketing structures, and also focuses on developing the U19, Development, and National Teams.
He only travels with the national team if Sri Lanka Cricket management deems it necessary for him to do so.
The SLC further said that Jayawardena, who is a highly regarded cricketing personality across the cricketing world, has been an invaluable asset to Sri Lanka Cricket since his appointment.
According to Mahela, he has even declined a coaching offer from, one of the ICC member board in order to serve Sri Lanka Cricket.
