Playing first round qualifying matches is to our advantage: Captain, Coach

Both captain Dasun Shanaka and head coach Chris Silverwood were of the view that Sri Lanka having to play three qualifying first round matches in addition to two warm-up games ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup Super12 would be to their advantage.

Due to their poor ICC T20 rankings Sri Lanka failed to gain automatic qualification into the Super12 of the 2022 T20 World Cup, but that has now turned to their benefit as it gives them an opportunity to acclimatise to the Australian conditions and wickets before the tournament proper.
