Gurusinha reappointed Sri Lanka selector after resigning
Asanka Gurusinha had stepped down from the role alongside the Sanath Jayasuriya-led selection committee after a string of defeats to India last month
Despite having stepped down from his role as Sri Lanka selector just weeks ago, cricket manager Asanka Gurusinha
has been reappointed to the position, along with three new selectors.
Gurusinha had been part of the Sanath Jayasuriya
-led selection committee since April, and had resigned
alongside that committee, saying: "When the others are stepping down, I can't stay there." His reinstatement affirms that SLC are happy for him continue in his powerful, tri-partite position. As cricket manager, Gurusinha effectively fulfills the roles of a team director, a team manager, and now, again, selector.
Woutersz, meanwhile, had been team manager as recently as January last year, before he was replaced by Charith Senanayake.
The new selectors' first assignment will be to choose the squad for the Tests against Pakistan - the first of which begins on September 28. The team is scheduled to depart on Sunday.
