Sri Lanka have been struggling so far against India in the ongoing Test series. Having narrowly avoided a defeat in the opening Test at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata last week, Sri Lanka’s misery continued in the second Test at Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur. Meanwhile, Sri Lankan bowling coach Rumesh Ratnayake has expressed his concerns regarding the teams’ bowling strength, and added that the team needs to claim 20 wickets to stand a chance to beat India in the Test series. Not to forget that Sri Lanka had a 0-9 annihilation across formats by India in the previous series at home. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Sri Lanka 2017-18, 2nd Test at Nagpur

On Sri Lanka’s inability to claim wickets

“We came quite close in the first Test and people then said that it was a green track. We took 17 wickets in Calcutta [Kolkata]. I am not trying to say that we have the best bowlers but we have to do things in a way so that we get the best results. It is a concern. In today’s context, we have not done well. I would like to still encourage the bowlers saying that they have slowed the process a little bit. We need to take 20 wickets and that’s for sure,” said Ratnayake during the post-day press conference on Sunday. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: India vs Sri Lanka 2017-18, 2nd Test at Nagpur, Day 3

“The whole system has to think of that. What we have for the tour is what we have. We have to manage with that. With the past record in Sri Lanka against India, we have done quite well as they scored 600 in 176.1 overs compared to some of the efforts in the past where it was much quicker. I am not taking that as a huge compliment as a fast bowling coach. This is what we have. First and foremost we have to say that it was a good track and we should have put on more than what we have done. India showed that.”

On Sadeera Samarawickrama’s dismissal off Ishant Sharma

“I thought the decision to leave the ball was poor. He left the first ball and he perhaps thought the ball was going away. It was a bad judgement. The other two were trying to be positive. That is what we are trying to do. We are going to play in sessions. We will break sessions into portions and we will try to win that.”
