When you play India, you have to take risks: Chandimal

Chandimal’s press conference:
How do you motivate the team after the massive loss in Galle?
We just want to forget about the mistakes we did in the first game. We want to take the positives out of it and go forward. That’s what I’m always talking to the boys. They are all looking forwarding to this game.
At the moment India is the no. 1 team. They’ve played some really good cricket in the last 2-3 years. Credit goes to them. But as a team it’s a really good challenge for us. My boys are all in a good position. We’re looking forward to doing well in this game and turning it around.
Have you had a look at the pitch?
The pitch looks like a dry surface, so after the second day it might turn.
Will we see an additional bowler?
Yeah, definitely. Most probably Malinda will come into the side. Dhananjaya has more chance to replace Asela. We’ll have to see the surface.
Can you give us an update on Herath’s fitness as well as yours?
I am much better. Thanks to the ICC they gave permission for me to use the inhaler, and that will help me breathe properly. Rangana is also fit to play.
