After a disappointing campaign I 2017, Sri Lanka started to turn things around by defeating Bangladesh in the Test series and the tri-nation series final. According to the opening batsman, Sri Lanka are confident  ahead of the T20 series against Bangladesh.

“We have done well, firstly the one-day series and then Test series, so we have the confidence. We have the momentum and we want to carry on with the momentum,” the Lankan skipper said.

When asked if the visitors are overlooking the inclusion of new faces in Bangladesh squad, Tharanga said that some of their players featured in BPL and have some ideas on the newcomers.

He said, “A few of our players have played in the BPL and we saw some of the new faces doing well in that competition. We have seen videos of them and so yeah, we have some idea on them,"

The left-handed batsman echoed Thisara Perera and agreed with his statement of Sri Lanka’s being the favorite.

“This series is very important for us as we were not consistent in the last one and a half or two years. We got the momentum from the one-day series so I think we are to continue that.

“Our confidence is high so yeah I agree,” Tharanga concluded.
