According to a SLC media release, Vaas' resignation had come about as a result of a dispute over payments, with SLC administrators also believed to be unhappy with the timing of his demands.
SLC has accused the former fast bowler of holding "the game at ransom".
Vaas has since tweeted saying that he had "made a humble request to SLC and they turned it down"
It has been reported that Vaas had requested his salary be in the region of what was being paid to the outgoing Saker. SLC has long had a payment structure wherein foreign coaches earn considerably more than their local counterparts, primarily due to the former being paid in foreign currency and the resultant favourable exchange rate with the Sri Lankan rupee.
In one of the many tweets sent by his fans read "His only crime was asking for same salary as the former coach but has been potrayed as greedy by SL Cricket. Why can’t thy pay him the same salary?"
