Former Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford has been named as the new coach of Ireland.
Ford, who coached Ford until recently, has signed a three-year deal and will take over from John Bracewell. The 56-year old South African has 25 years of coaching experience with South Africa and Sri Lanka.
“I am really excited to be a part of this new era in Irish cricket. I have always enjoyed working with decent people and, in their attitude, character and camaraderie, the Irish cricketers have always come across as such,” Ford said.
Ireland and Afghanistan attained Test status in June.
