But his stint was cut short after a dismal tour of South Africa, although he was contracted till the 2019 World Cup.
With Hathurusingha having inked a three-year deal, he will be Sri Lanka's head coach until the end of 2020.
A month later, Sri Lanka appointed him their new head coach.
Though Hassan initially said it was just a courtesy call from Hathurusingha, in essence the Sri Lankan gave the BCB boss a few slivers of information, such as his frustration over Shakib Al Hasan's decision to rest for the South Africa Tests. "He couldn't accept that as he is a different type of person and his question was why Shakib wouldn't play in such an important series despite being a vital player". Later in the day, Hassan confirmed, the BCB had accepted his decision. Plus there were a few other incidents which took place in South Africa and after that he thought that he had nothing more to give to this team.

District Court Judge William Alsup's order requiring the Trump administration to turn over all decision-related documents. The district court later instructed the government to "be ready to file" a complete set of documents by December 22.
Several hours after arriving in Dhaka, Hathurusingha met with the BCB top brass that included president Hassan, CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury and directors Ismail Haider Mallick, Khaled Mahmud and Akram Khan.
Hathurusingha's first full assignment will be a two-Test tour of Bangladesh in January.
"He spoke particularly about issues that will help take Bangladesh cricket forward". "In that case we are not in a rush to select the head coach and go for the best possible solution, ' he said".
"We have asked them to take the preparation because we don't want to rush things down". Hathurusingha happened to arrive in the same hotel where the meeting was arranged, and BCB president hailed him for his contribution and wished him good luck for the future.
