WINNING IS IMPORTANT BUT WE ARE MORE FOCUSED TOWARDS ACHIEVING THE GOALS FOR BUILDING UP THE FUTURE: MATHEWS

After the destruction done to the Australian cricket team by the Sri Lankans in the 3 match test series that is recently finished over, So they want don’t to loosen up their momentum and are trying their best to hold on the grip over the limited overs also.

 

On this contrary the coach of the Sri Lanka cricket team Graham Ford has particularly pointed up on the topic that the team will have to concentrate on building it up that would meet their standards, and to focus on the future team.

 

"We've got a very good mixture of experience and youth in the team. Most of them are newcomers - the likes of Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Mendis. Except for a few players who have played 50-60 games, it is a very exciting time for us," the Sri Lankan skipper said.


"Avishka looked really good in the centre yesterday. Most importantly we wanted to share that dressing room atmosphere and the experience with a younger player like him.Especially because we're playing at home we have the advantage of bringing in an Under-19 player to share the dressing room with the likes of the Tillakaratne Dilshans and Dinesh Chandimals. That's our main idea, but if there's a chance he'll play as well," he added.


"Thisara is a very important player," Mathews said. "He hasn't performed extremely well - the way he would have liked to, or we would have liked him to. But he's a character who could turn things around at any given day with bat or ball. We're hoping he'll come good in this series. Our expectations of him are as a bowler, mainly."

 

"We've got so many spinners to choose from, a good set of batters and a couple of fast bowlers. We're yet to decide whether we want to go with two spinners and two fast bowlers or three spinners and one fast bowler. We'll come back tomorrow, take a look at the wicket, and then decide," Mathews concluded.
