At a pre-match press conference, the Sri Lanka captain said that the Men In Blue played a great game against Pakistan, despite finishing on the losing side, and that they have been playing very good cricket lately.
“They (India) had a great match last night. They have played good cricket and will be prepared. I don’t think they will be under any pressure,” Shanaka said at a pre-match press conference.
Speaking about Sri Lanka’s strategies towards the pivotal meeting with India, Dasun Shanaka said:
“Our strategy mainly revolves around batting, long partnerships at the top of the order. If we can do that, we have a better chance of winning the game.”
They are a real bowling attack – Dasun Shanaka on the Indian bowling unit
The bowling squad of the Indian national cricket team was not very impressive in the 2022 Asia Cup due to the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Harshal Patel. However, the Sri Lanka captain believes that the Indian bowling unit led by veteran pacemaker Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not at all inexperienced. He said:
“I don’t think so (that they are inexperienced). They are a real bowling attack. They have played a lot of IPL and have a lot of experience.”
Former Indian National Cricket Team skipper Kohli, who has found his mojo after a lengthy meager patch, looked good in the ongoing Asian Cup. He is currently the highest finisher in the 2022 Asian Cup with 154 runs to his name with an average of 77 and a strike rate of 126.22.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka said the Lankan Lions will be very well prepared to deal with the threat posed by the former captain of the Indian national cricket team.
