Chandika Hathurusingha Will Be NSW’s New Batting Coach

Former Bangladesh and Sri Lanka coach Chandika Hathurusingha will be the new batting coach of New South Wales. 

New South Wales has successfully persuaded Chandika Hathurusingha to be officially a part of their support staff for the upcoming season. Hathurusingha has accepted the offer of being the new batting coach, considering that he had already coached The Blues between 2011 to 2014. 

Hathurusingha will replace Michael Yardy who quitted last year to take up another role with Kent. With that, Hathurusingha will work closely with head coach Phil Jaques, bowling coach Andre Adams, and spin coach Anthony Clark. 

In his statement, Hathurusingha says, ‘It is one of the best working environments I have experienced being part of NSW. The best part is there is always a lot of talent coming through NSW cricket. I learnt a lot about the culture last time working with established players like Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin and Shane Watson and we had young players like Steve Smith, David Warner, Peter Nevill, Moises Henriques and Kurtis Patterson coming through who have gone on to higher honours’. 

‘Coaching at international level has given me a lot of confidence in my methods and I'm looking forward to bringing that experience to the Blues’, he added. 

With Hathurusingha coming into the team, head coach Jaques also made a statement saying that he will be a great addition to the staff due to the fact that he had already worked with some of the best players in the world.
