Ford declines to renew SL contract to honour family commitments

Johannesburg, Sept 13 (ANI): Sri Lanka head coach Graham Ford has intimated that he would like to be released from his coaching duties at the end of his contract due to his family commitments.

According to Sport24, Ford was appointed head coach for two years after Geoff Marsh was sacked in January 2012.

Sri Lanka's series against Pakistan in neutral UAE in December will be Ford's last assignment unless the South African coach can be convinced to carry on, the report said.

Sri Lanka will play three tests, five one-days and two Twenty20 internationals against Pakistan, the report added.

Ford, who has been linked to the vacant coaching position with English county side Surrey, guided Sri Lanka to the final of the Twenty20 World Cup and to a test series victory against Pakistan, the report further said. (ANI)
