Ford to quit Sri Lanka in January

Sri Lanka Cricket will begin its search for a new national coach, after Graham Ford maintained that he will walk away from the job when his contract expires in January.

Ford had indicated last week to the board he would not be renewing his contract, but SLC asked him to reconsider that decision on Friday, even suggesting changes to his working conditions, that might make the job more agreeable to him.

Ford has not changed his mind however, after having consulted with his family, whom he cites as the reason for leaving the job.
