Colombo: Former South African cricketer Barry Richards has been asked by Sri Lanka's cricket authorities to help coach their batsmen, officials here said on Friday.

Richards, one of the world's greatest batsmen, has already completed one stint with the Sri Lankan team and the Interim Cricket Control Board expects him to do two more shortly, said Board member Sidath Wettimuny.

It was not immediately clear when the coaching sessions will begin. Former Australian cricketer Dav Whatmore is the overall coach of the Sri Lankan team.
