The discussion mandated by the executive committee of Sri Lanka Cricket will be held either tomorrow or Wednesday, sources say.

The negotiations are to focus on the salary which would be at Rs. 500,000 per month in par with the other coaches. Sri Lanka Cricket has proposed the same salary for Vaas as well.
