Focus should shift to T20 WC – De Mel

Ashantha de Mel, Chairman of Cricket Selectors, thinks Sri Lanka should focus on training that is specific to the shortest format, as they prepare for next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia. 

“This is a different format,” said de Mel.

“I think we need to focus on training specific to the T20 game.”

Training specific to the T20 format that refers to are power-hitting (a skill missing from the Sri Lankan side), boosting the speed with which they play their shots, improving running between wickets and also honing the skill levels of bowlers to take wickets and lockdown the scoring.
