(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) –  Sri Lanka’s new cricket coach South Africa’s Mickey Arthur has arrived in Sri Lanka and will travel to Pakistan with the Sri Lanka team for the two-Test tour later this week.

Arthur who has served before as head coach of South Africa, Australia and Pakistan is expected to take over officially for Sri Lanka’s tour to India for three T20 Internationals in January.
