The 10-ball period in which Sri Lanka dropped three sacks, all of England's top goalscorer Jason Roy, was when the hosts lost the only T20I in Colombo, according to captain Thisara Perera. Roy spilled into the depths three times, and the first two opportunities of Lakshan Sandakan bowling were particularly direct. I would do 34 runs of 11 balls after that first postponement.
Although in the recent ODI series, Sri Lanka had been half decent in the field, in general they have fallen sadly in the last two years, particularly in the limited field. cricket abroad. Three different head coaches, Graham Ford, Nic Pothas and now Chandika Hathurusingha, have tried to circle the course in Sri Lanka, but they have not been decisive in correcting the discomfort.
"It's hard to keep saying every time we fall." We lost the game. But that was also the most important thing in today's game, "said Thisara." That was a bad patch for us. He is the batter who scored the most runs for those we admonished. We could have kept them under 160 if we had captured those three or four captures. "
The other final period of The game, for Thisara, was the first of the first three in the Sri Lankan chase, when Joe Denly fired the two openers and had the hosts 16 for 2.
"We also gave away two windows in the first shots, and we lost a lot of momentum there. If we had kept those lands in hand, we could have chased 188, especially since the gardens were a bit greasy. "
Later in the chase, Adil Rashid would effectively seal the match for England, with a four-way spell. about which he claimed three fields and conceded only 11 runs.Although Thisara is not part of the Test setup, he felt that Rashid was reaching a sinister form just ahead of the Tests.
"Moeen Ali and Rashid are playing the bowling very well. It will also be very difficult for us in the games that are coming. They are doing well in Asia. "
