Newly appointed National Head Coach Chandika Hathurusingha has revealed that among other things, the team is lacking intensity.
Hathurusingha, who conducted a meeting for the 23 players picked in the initial pool, outlined his priorities before conducting a lengthy training session at the R. Premadasa Stadium yesterday.
Hathurusingha said “Quite a few things we are not doing right at the moment and that’s why we are in this situation. But no doubt about the skill we have. There are so many cricketers that I can see that they can go onto become one of the top five players in the world. If they are not doing justice to their talent – that means that lot of things are going wrong”.
