Dilshan complaint led to Marsh sacking

A recent Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) document has shed some light on SLC’s mysterious sacking of Geoff Marsh as national coach in 2012 and claims that it came as a result of an official complaint made by the then national captain Tillakaratne Dilshan and concerns expressed by senior players.

Yes is interesting, thanks for sharing. That line about him watching his son has been repeated a number of times since the sacking. So perhaps true.
I just wonder why the potential conflict of issue wasn't raised as a question either directly to him at the interview or amongst those that were making the final decision on the Head coach.

The timing of such news prior to WC is not surprising and again disappointing!

@delan82, think the timing has something to do with the on going investigations after the Government-toppling... hoping to see much more dirt in the near future, especially of Nishantha uncle... :D

Assuming this is true, the question really is why did SLC appoint a guys whose sons were actively involeved in international cricket. I think the Farther watning to follow his sons at international level is only natural. Yes he's a paid proffessional etc etc but I am sure all the Farthers our there would agree, you would also want to know how your son is doing. That his not really the quetion but why SLC appointed Marsh knowing this.

I have raised a similar issue against Chris Broad being a match official while his son in actively playing against his Sons opponents. Not on in my books.
