England in Jayawardene consultancy talks
Mahela Jayawardene could be joining the England coaching staff in a consultancy role.
Paul Farbrace, who coached the Sri Lanka team to the World T20 title in 2014, has already spoken to the prolific former batsman but that Andrew Strauss, England's team director, has yet to agree any deal.
Trevor Bayliss, the new coach, also knows Jayawardene well from his period as Sri Lanka coach.
Jayawardene earned an outstanding record as a batsman across the formats and around the world in an 18-year international career.
