The Asian champions Sri Lanka qualified for the ODI World Cup after having a stellar tournament in the qualifiers. They eventually managed to beat the Netherlands in the finals and will now eye to do well in the mega tournament, which is slated to begin on October 5 in India. Meanwhile, despite coming through the qualifiers, the Dasun Shanaka-led side cannot be taken lightly in the World Cup, as per former cricketer Chaminda Vaas.
“We have a talented side and one of the best leg-spinners – Wanindu Hasranga – I have seen in the world. There are mystery bowlers who bring variety to attack and we have Matheesha Pathirana who has been performing really well in IPL.
“The most important thing is we have to play as a team you know when it comes to a big tournament and playing the right combination and playing smart cricket is most important and if we can do that, I’m pretty sure that we can fight and can give a fight to any team,” Vaas said in an exclusive interview to News18.
