Terrible’ cricketers will play ‘thrilling’ series

For the past few years, Bangladesh-Sri Lanka face-off has been a tense tension. The frenzy of the audience is also palpable. Angelo Mathews’ ‘timed out’ discussion in the last World Cup is still being criticized. Now the Lankans have come to play a complete series on the soil of Bangladesh. The three-match T20 series starts in Sylhet tomorrow.

Sri Lankan team coach Chris Silverwood feels that the fight will be intense, “It will be a very competitive series.” Both teams are good. What happened in the past is history to me. It is behind. The World Cup is ahead, so we have to prepare ourselves.

Silverwood believes that both teams have formidable cricketers, “Each team is making final preparations now.” We are also preparing for the World Cup. As I said, I am expecting a very exciting series. Both teams have some formidable cricketers. So it will be very enjoyable cricket.

In response to the question of who is the favorite in this series, this Lankan coach put his team ahead, ‘I would say that Sri Lanka is the favourite. But as I said, both teams are very good. So it will be very difficult to win the series. We want to play the best cricket.

Silverwood also clarified his team’s goals, ‘We are focusing on our strengths, focusing on our performance. We are doing well in T20, we want to keep that consistency. We have to develop as a team. We want to establish our own brand of cricket before the World Cup. We want to play like Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka.
