Simon Willis resigns as SL high performance manager

Cricket


Sri Lanka’s high performance manager Simon Willis has handed in his resignation to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), less than two years into a three-year contract. ESPNcricinfo understands that Willis’ decision was down to personal reasons and that plans to bring in a suitable replacement is now underway.

“Simon has given us six months notice and as such will remain with Sri Lanka Cricket until June 30,” a SLC release stated. “We will therefore be advertising for the position.”

Willis, whose recruitment was spearheaded by Aravinda De Silva – in his then capacity as SLC cricket committee chairman – had been recruited especially for the newly created role of high performance manager in June 2015 to oversee Sri Lanka’s cricket academy, as well play a key role in identifying and developing young talent.

SLC hopes to bring in Willis’ replacement at least two months prior to the end of his term, so as to ensure a smooth transition.
