Herath: It will be a tough challenge
“Bangladesh have improved a lot in recent years. They have some good players. I think it will be a challenging series for us,” Herath told the media at Galle International Cricket Stadium on Monday. “The last time we played against Bangladesh in Galle, Mushfiqur Rahim scored 200 and Mohammad Ashraful scored 190. But later in the Colombo Test, we played really well and won the match. We came back confidently then and I believe this team also have the ability to come back form difficult situations,” he said. Herath is leading the side in the absence of regular captain Angelo Mathews, who is unavailable due to injury. Sri Lanka are relatively inexperienced in comparison to Bangladesh but Herath believes his team can produce positive results in the five-dayers. Bangladesh have three Lankans in their coaching staff – head coach Chandika Hathurusingha, batting consultant Thilan Samaraweera and fitness coach Mario Villavarayan. Herath however, thinks it will not be a big deal for them. “They will have an advantage as they have Sri Lankans in the coaching staff. Because, they know the conditions well. They also know our player’s strengths and weaknesses. But this will be a new game. So we have to get on with that. The team who will play better cricket will win the match in the end,” he added.
