Romesh Kaluwitharana, who was in the Sri Lankan side which won the 1996 World Cup, has been appointed coach of the Malaysian squad on a short-term contract.
Five applicants are on the short-list for the permanent position as national coach of Malaysia but none are able to join before July.
"All the players are looking forward to Mr. Kaluwitharana's arrival and it is a tremendous honour for all of us to have a coach of his experience," Vishnu Suppiah, Malaysia's vice-captain, said. "It was he along with Sanath Jayasuriya who changed the face of one-day batting and I am hoping he will be able to provide us with some good batting tips as Malaysia's downfall in the past has been its batting."
