MUMBAI, Nov 15: Mickey Arthur is set to be Sri Lanka's new head coach, it is learnt here.
According to the highly placed sources in SLC, South Africa-born Arthur will be in Pakistan with the Sri Lankan team as a consultant and Rumesh Ratnayake will be the head coach.
However, after the Pakistan tour, he will take over the head coach post. Arthur has worked with the South Africa, Australia and Pakistan teams.
Arthur's experience with the Sri Lankan team in Pakistan will be more beneficial in the sense he has already worked with the Pakistan team very recently and is aware about the techniques of Pak players and wickets. Arthur is likely to arrive in Sri Lanka in this month to complete the contract procedure.
No positions for bowling and batting coach are finalized.
Fielding coach: SLC has also almost finalised deal with the Australian as the fielding coach.
Tasmania-based Shane McDermott is likely to be the new fielding coach, it is also learnt here.
The 38-year-old McDermott was a left-handed batsman and a fielding coach. Like Arthur, he has also not played any international cricket.
