New Delhi :  

Former skipper Hashan Tillakaratne has been appointed as the temporary batting coach of the Sri Lanka team. Tillakaratne had started working with the senior team ahead of the one-off Test against Zimbabwe, Tillakaratne will as of now continue until the end of the India series before the board takes a call as to who will take over the role permanently.

Sri Lanka Cricket manager Asanka Gurusinha told ESPNCricinfo about the development. "Hashan has been with us since the recent Test match against Zimbabwe, actually. At this stage, for all the Tests he will be the batting coach. Most probably after the Indian series, we'll discuss with coach Nic Pothas and see what's happening from there. With all his experience, there is a lot the batsmen can learn from him."
