Sri Lanka would enter the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event with hopes of smashing the popular narrative of them not being a good enough team to lift the title. The coaching panel feels otherwise as it believes that the team has enough gas to challenge the top sides of the cricketing world.
Former Sri Lankan paceman Chaminda Vaas who is currently operating as a part of Sri Lanka’s coaching staff shared his opinion that his team is positive about springing few surprises in the forthcoming mega-event. Being a World Cup winner, the Mattumagala born clearly understands the significance of winning a global title.
The 45-year old has urged the bunch to be united for a demanding tournament. Moreover, he advised the current crop of players about putting in a lot of effort as there are no short-cuts to success. Before commencing their World campaign against a strong side of New Zealand on June 1, Sri Lanka would also play two ODIs against Scotland which would help them shape their preparations for the 10-team tournament.
