Sri Lanka Cricket on Wednesday appointed former Test captain Marvan Atapattu as head coach to prepare for the 2015 World Cup hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Atapattu had served as the interim coach for three months before his full-time appointment Wednesday, guiding the team during the recent series against England, South Africa and Pakistan.

The former batsman replaces Englishman Paul Farbrace who quit in April after just four months on the job to take over as England’s deputy coach under Peter Moores.

Atapattu will be the latest addition in a succession of coaches for Sri Lanka since 2010, following Trevor Bayliss, Stuart Law, Rumesh Ratnayake, Geoff Marsh, Graham Ford and Farbrace.
