Mon, Apr 28, 2014, 11:56 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's cricket board, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) today appointed former Surrey coach Chris Adams as a consultant for Sri Lanka for their upcoming tour of England.

The Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket at its meeting held today (April 28th) approved the appointment of Adams, former Sussex County Captain, to consult the team in the absence of their former national coach Paul Farbrace.

SLC's Chairman Cricket Committee Ranjit Fernando, Chairman Selection Committee Sanath Jayasuriya and Head of Coaching Jerome Jayaratne have recommended the appointment of Adams, who was replaced from his stint with Surrey by Sri Lanka's former coach Graham Ford.

Sri Lanka expects to benefit from Adams' knowledge on the England team and his experience with England's new national coach Peter Moores.

The Executive Committee also approved the appointment of Marvan Atapattu as the Head Coach of the National Cricket team and Ruwan Kalpage as the Interim Assistant Coach.

Their appointments are in effect immediately till the conclusion of South Africa's tour to Sri Lanka this year.

Farbrace, who took up appointment as the national coach of Sri Lanka from January this year and coached the national team to win both Asia Cup and the ICC World T20 championships, left his post last week to be the assistant coach of the England National team under Moores.

Sri Lanka will play one T20I, five ODIs and two Tests against England, starting on May 22.
