Colombo - Former Sri Lanka seam bowler Chaminda Vaas has been appointed head bowling coach to the national team for two years.

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement on Wednesday that the 39-year-old Vaas, who has the most number of Test and one-day international wickets for his country after Muttiah Muralitharan, will lead a three-member unit that will also comprise former seam bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake.
