Dyson: new Sri Lankan cricket coach 

[July 15, 2003 - 9.30 GMT] 

Sri Lanka’s new cricket coach John Dyson said yesterday that Sri Lankan team has a great deal of depth and talent.

“If we can work towards maximising that talent and potential, we will do well,” Dyson said.

The former Australian Test opener said that Sri Lanka’s biggest strength was their aggressive style of cricket they play and their biggest weakness was maintaining consistency of performance. “That’s an area we will definitely work on,” he said.

Dyson will officially take over coaching the Sri Lankan team from September 1. His initial contract is for 20 months. He replaces his fellow countryman, Dav Whatmore, who has now taken charge of Bangladesh.
