Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) sources said Pothas, who acted as Sri Lanka's national coach since July a year ago, wanted him appointed as assistant coach to Chandika Hathurusinghe.

Nic Pothas acted as the Head Coach when Graham Ford unexpectedly quit the Sri Lanka set up following the team's early exit at the Champions Trophy.

The tri-nation one-day tournament involving host Bangladesh along with Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe that begins Monday catches all three teams at a particularly low ebb.

Bangladesh is coming off a disastrous South Africa tour in which they lost every match across all three formats of the game.

Liberian leader expelled from governing party following presidential election defeat
The 79-year-old who became Africa's first democratically elected president in 2005, did not react to such claims. We spoke to the CEO of Bestman Games, Mrs Nimi Akinkugbe, on the importance and culture of board games.

"This tri-nation tournament is really important for us".

Hathurusingha, 49, resigned in the middle of the South Africa tour, though the decision was only made public in December.

Former national captain Khaled Mahmud is in interim charge as team director, and the Bangladesh Cricket Board has yet to indicate when a permanent replacement will be named.

Mortaza also dismissed the idea that Hathurusingha's and Streak's knowledge of the Bangladesh team may work against them. Angelo Mathews stood down as captain in July amid the turmoil but just six months later was reappointed skipper for limited-overs cricket ahead of the 2019 World Cup.
