Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya will make a return to cricket activities after serving a two-year ICC ban. He has been appointed as the coach of Melbourne club Mulgrave.

“Dilshan opened the door for us there, and it was a fantastic opportunity that was presented to us,” said Mulgrave president Malin Pullenayegam.

“We just had to work on it and come to an agreement, and we have. I think it’s a great opportunity for our young guys to know what international cricket standards are.”

“That kind of exposure from a young age just elevates the standard of cricket they’ll be playing,” he added.
