Mahela Jayawardene likely to be appointed as consultant of Sri Lanka under 19 team

Mahela Jayawardene Most Ducks in ODI

If you look at the current Sri Lankan team you might not remember the names of all the members of the squad it is because of kind of cricket that they are playing in last 12-14 months.

Gone are those era of Ranatunga, De Silva, Sangakkara, Muraltharan , Jayasuria and many more match winners who single handedly used to win matches for Island nation.

As the Sri Lanka recent tour of England didn’t go down well where they failed to show any character and was completely outplayed by host nation.

The question were also raised regarding improving the domestic structure of Sri Lanka cricket and certainly in that regard for the betterment of under 19 cricket the board is likely to appoint former Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene as the consultant of team considering his track record as coach of Mumbai Indians has been phenominal.

However if Jayawardene gets appointed as the consultant of Under 19 Sri Lankan team who desperately needs revival a character like Jayawardene will certainly uplift the status of team to a great extent.

Taking about their senior team they are likely to compete against India for three ODI and three T20 series where Shikhar Dhawan will be leading the white ball side for India in absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli.
