Nigeria have signed up the former Sri Lanka batsman and manager of the national team Asanka Gurusinha as their head coach.

“The appointment of Asanka marks another milestone in this administration’s desire to raise the standard of the game in the country both at the elite and development level,” Yahaya Adam Ukwenya, president of the NCF, said in a statement. “Internally, his appointment will greatly impart on our development structure as we look to begin our Accelerated Growth Program.

“On the big stage, Nigeria can no longer take a passing interest in world cricket, we should be able to compete at all levels we play and not just make up the numbers.”
