NetBall 410px 14 09 12Sri Lanka national netball team has participated in the 2014 Asian Netball Championship, which was recently concluded at Singapore, without a head coach, reports say.

It is said that it was only Sri Lankan team that took part in the competition with such a deficiency.

The factors identified by the 5 member committee appointed with regard to Sri Lanka being defeated by Singapore in 2012 Asian Netball Championship, have recurred in this year's championship as well, reports say.

The factors identified by the committee were, appointing a new captain after removing the former, appointing mother for the position of coach while her daughter remains in the squad (she was removed form the squad later) and absence of a head coach.

In addition, the critiques are of the opinion that not providing the team with a foreign training and practicing in various locations as the indoor stadium built by the Sports Ministry lacks spaces for a netball court have also caused the particular situation.

It has been reported that the netball team could not use Sugathadasa Stadium during the last days of practice, despite the wife of Chairman of Sugathadasa Stadium being a member of netball interim committee.
