Chris Silverwood, 49, gave ‘personal reasons’ for his resignation and said, "Being an international coach means long periods away from loved ones.

His exit comes close on the heels of Mahela Jayawardene's resignation as consultant coach following the team's disappointing T20 World Cup campaign in which they failed to qualify for the Super 8s.
