Kuruppu reappointed Sri Lankan manager

The Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee decided to reappoint Brendon Kuruppu as manager for Sri Lanka's tour of New Zealand, starting in mid-December. Sri Lanka is due to play a series of five one-day internationals and two Tests.

Kuruppu, a former Sri Lanka Test wicket-keeper cum opening bat was first appointed manager to the national team in October for the tour to Pakistan, following the expiry of long term manager Ajith Jayasekera's contract at the end of September. Sri Lanka won the tri-nation Paktel Cup and shared the two-Test series one-all in Pakistan. SLC are hoping to advertise for a new manager after the New Zealand tour.
