Sarfraz Ahmed: The wickets in the Tests were slightly different. I think we have a good momentum going in and people are performing well. It is not that there is no pressure but we are lucky that the players have understood their respective roles perfectly; which simplifies the role of a captain. The way Shenwari bowled and made an impact with the kind of lengths he bowled was superb on debut. We’ll have a look at the conditions in the next match and then look at the combinations and the batting order.
Upul Tharanga: I think we are repeating the same mistakes. We are a good batting side but I do not know why we keep playing like this. It is a matter of confidence, none of our top six have enough runs under their belt and hope we do well next game. After Dinesh got out, Sadeera got out in the same over and we couldn’t recover. Akila has been bowling well in the last two series for us and Vandersay has been bowling well too.
