Sri Lanka’s T20I captain Wanindu Hasaranga has claimed that his side possesses ‘one of the best bowling outfits’ in the world.

While talking to the media ahead of the first T20I against Afghanistan today, Hasaranga showed faith in his bowlers, who according to him make the best bowling attack in T20I cricket.

“If you look at world cricket, we’re one of the best teams in terms of bowling outfits,” said the star all-rounder. “If you look at the rankings, myself and Maheesh [Theekshana] are in the top 10.”

The Sri Lankan captain then praised his country’s pace attack and expressed the belief that they can win matches for the team.

“Dushmantha Chameera was unlucky with his injury, otherwise he’d also be here. But in his place we have Binura [Fernando] who has come in, and there’s also Matheesha [Pathirana] and Nuwan Thushara. We know how good those two are. Dilshan Madushanka is also there.

“In terms of bowlers we have quite a few options, so when we come to playing on good tracks – especially T20s – we need to see exactly how to bowl. We’ve bowled on good wickets before, so I think in T20s it’s from the bowlers that you’re going to win matches.

Hasaranga also asserted that the series against Afghanistan will help them find the best combination for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA).

He also stated that his side would be well-prepared for the mega-event, considering the fact that the conditions in the Caribbean are similar to Sri Lanka.

“The types of wickets we’re going to play on at the World Cup, there’s a good chance we’ll play on similar wickets during these next six games.

“With that, we’ll be aiming to figure out how we can win a game with our combination of bowlers.”
