The 1-4 scoreline suggests otherwise, but Sri Lanka have been competitive in the recent five-match series in Australia. The outing also gave Sri Lanka a good idea of ​​the conditions and the combination ahead of the World Cup Down Under later this year.

“We want the top order to fire. Whenever the top order is between races, we have a better chance of winning.

“India have a strong bowling line-up and we expect our top order to fire, which will give our bowlers a chance to bounce back,” Shanka said in the pre-match press conference on Wednesday.

Star spinner Wanindu Hasaranga will miss the series due to a COVID-19 infection he contracted in Australia. The skipper said that the team will miss him, but he hopes that the young people will rise to the occasion.

“The boys have been in the system for a while, they have performed in domestic cricket. It has become normal with the COVID situation. Every team is facing it. Wanindu will be a weakness for us, but we know he will be back soon. However, our team it’s strong enough.”

Shanaka has used only five bowlers lately but said he is ready to roll his arm if the situation calls for it.

“Our first five bowlers have done well. Personally I would have liked to bowl, but I have not had the opportunity to bowl. If any of the bowlers are hit, I am ready to take the ball.”

Sri Lanka had beaten second-string India at home last year. The captain said the away series will be a much tougher challenge even though India will miss the services of Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (both rested) and the injured Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Chahar.

“They have players with a lot of IPL experience. They will also be very strong. But we also have a good side,” he added.

“It’s a great thing. We played with a crowd and it’s a great feeling to play with the crowd behind you. I heard that the BCCI did not allow spectators for the first match. But I think now they have realized how important it is. our number one game is 300 and Virat’s 100th Test match. It’s a good decision by BCCI to allow 50% of the spectators to attend the first Test.”

Malinga Named Sri Lanka T20 Captain

Talking about the visitors’ plans to counter the Indian batsmen, Karunaratne, who has scored 902 runs in Tests in 2021, did not divulge much about Sri Lanka’s game plan. “Our plans, they are secret. We should not tell that to the press. But we have some plans. We know that some boys are playing like (Shreyas) Iyer, Shubman Gill, these are the boys who are supposed to take the places of (Ajinkya) Rahane and (Cheteshwar) Pujara. So we have some plans and we will try to execute them in the Test as well.”

Karunaratne confirmed that the playing eleven may consist of three seamers, one left-arm spinner and seven batsmen. Lahiru Thirimanne may open alongside Karunaratne with Pathum Nissanka at three and Niroshan Dickwella at wicket-keeper, marking his first Test since the bio-bubble breach ban. He stopped by expressing his confidence that the spinners will do well in India and hinted that paceman Dushmantha Chameera was rested for the first Test.

“Talking about Dushi (Chameera), he has played in the last few months in the T20Is. We had to rest him and we are looking to play him in the second Test, the pink ball Test. The spinners are young but they have done a lot. well in the last Test matches if you take (Lasith) Embuldeniya, Praveen (Jayawickrama) and even Ramesh (Mendis, injured). Those guys have done an amazing job with the bowling part in the last few days. sure they they can do the same in Indian conditions too.”

Perhaps this is a very difficult time for all of us and a couple of difficult days that we must endure as a nation and also in the days to come!

As a cricketer and as a leader, I have always been used to understanding the fact that life is never an easy walk or it was never meant to be a walk in the park. Hurdles, traps, bumpy rides and even road blocks are part of it, certainly as it was for me as a professional cricketer.

As a nation of amazing people full of resilience, my wish is to stay united, stay strong and love our motherland our brothers and sisters of Lanka and more respect each other whatever your base during this uncertain turmoil.

It is very difficult and really disheartening for everyone and that includes my family/teammates in the entire Sri Lanka National Team, which includes myself.

We go through these uncertainties almost all the time in the field of Cricket and this is the reality. One thing though, against all odds, we are doing our best to preserve the brand of Sri Lanka and at this point I feel almost the same that we other Lankans should stand by each other and work towards a peaceful Sri Lanka/ diligent, but in constant development for the particular benefit of the future generation

The more than 22 million citizens of our island are our greatest resource, each of us must be respected, cared for and have the freedom to live in peace in our beloved homeland, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean.

One thing I have learned in life over the years is to be diplomatic. However, TRUTH, nothing but TRUTH and PEOPLE POWER is essential and “non-negotiable” in a democracy

We live in the modern world in 2022, a world that wants answers to questions followed by action and positive results all the time, like cricket.
