Sep 03, 2015 (LBO) – Sri Lanka Cricket has accepted the resignation of Marvan Atapattu from the post of Head Coach of the Sri Lanka Cricket Team.

“Sri Lanka Cricket thanks Atapattu for his efforts as Head Coach and Batting Coach of the Sri Lanka Cricket Team, and we wish him every success in all his future endeavors.” SLC said in a statement.
