Jayasuriya praises Bangladesh batsmen
Jayasuriya told the media in the sidelines of Sri Lanka's practice session on Monday at Rangiri International Cricket Stadium, “There have been some really good, positive things from the Bangladesh team; as a batting unit, bowling unit and fielding unit, they’ve been doing well. They’re batting well, their experienced players are there and they’ve been working on their game plan really well. “So that is why the top-four batsmen are getting runs. That’s the key. That’s what we want. Any team want the top four to score,” he said. The Lankans are going through a tough time at the moment after losing 5-0 to South Africa in the ODIs and 3-0 in Tests. Although they won the first Test match against Bangladesh, they lost the second and final five-dayer at P Sara Oval. Even in the first ODI against the Tigers, they were humbled by 90 runs. Despite the recent run of bad results, Jayasuriya said there is no pressure on him as selector the Lankans are currently going through a transitional period. “Pressure is such as we know that we are in Sri Lanka cricket’s trial session period. We are trying out youngsters for the last seven-eight months, after all our senior cricketers retired. So, it will be a little up and down,” he said. The Lankan great urged his charges to score big and also maintain high standards in the field. “The difference is we need to get runs on the board. The Bangladeshis are getting runs on the board. We are not getting runs on the board. So we need to get runs on the board, then there will be no difference. We need to field well and bowl well,” he said.
