Chris Silverwood named Sri Lanka's new head coach.

Chris Silverwood, the former England fast bowler, has been signed by SLC on a two-year deal as head coach of the Sri Lanka men's national team. His first series in charge will be the team's upcoming two-Test tour of Bangladesh in May.

Silverwood was until February the head coach of the England men's team, but parted ways with the ECB in the wake of the side's 4-0 Ashes series defeat in Australia. His term with England lasted a little over two years after he took over from Trevor Bayliss in October 2019.

Sri Lanka have been without a full-time head coach since Mickey Arthur's departure in December after his contract had run out. While he had repeatedly expressed a desire to continue, SLC were understood to have been unresponsive. Since then, former fast bowler Rumesh Ratnayake had been in charge of the men's team.
