Sri Lanka named Mickey Arthur as head coach

Sports News Update: South African Mickey Arthur is to be named Sri Lanka’s head coach, replacing Chandika Hathurusingha, who was stripped of his coaching responsibilities following a disappointing World Cup, an official source said on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old takes over ahead of the two-match Test series against Pakistan later this month, the official said, adding that a formal announcement was expected shortly.

Details of the two-year contract were not immediately available, but three others are also due to join him in rebuilding the Sri Lankan coaching department, the source said. The others are Grant Flower as batting coach, David Saker in charge of bowling and Shane McDermott handling fielding.
