Perera: Sri Lanka are favourite
Sri Lanka all-rounder Thisara Perera admitted that the two-match T20I series against host Bangladesh will be challenging, despite the Lankans winning both the tri-nation ODI series and two-match Test series against the Tigers recently. Perera however, believes Sri Lanka would start as favourite. Bangladesh will play the first of two T20Is Thursday at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka. “Cricket is a game where you can’t tell who will win or lose. But the team who will do less mistakes in the match will be victorious. I know Bangladesh will try to come back strongly because they lost two back-to-back series – one-day series and Test series. I hope they come better than the last two series,” said Perera during training at BCB Academy Ground in Mirpur Tuesday. The all-rounder said they will be targeting a clean sweep in the shortest format of the game. “Obviously, I am Sri Lankan and I’ll always tell that Sri Lanka are favourite in T20I series. That’s why, I said the team who will do less mistakes they have possibility of winning the match. Actually, the best team will win the match in given day,” he added. Perera performed well in the fifth season of the Bangladesh Premier League T20 in November-December, 2017, while playing for Rangpur Riders. He also played plenty of matches in Bangladesh in his career which he believes will be beneficial for the team. “I played most of the games of my career in Bangladesh. It’s good for me. Last time I played very well during the BPL. It’s good not only for me but also for the team. I am always thinking about my success because I never think about my negatives. And they are my cricket career successes. I’m always for wickets. I never think my negative sides and always thinking about my positives,” he explained. Perera believes losing all-rounder Shakb al Hasan will be a big blow for the host and it can give an advantage to the visiting side. “Everyone knows he (Shakib) is a talented player. He can change the game. So, I think, it’s big blow for Bangladesh team without Shakib,” Perera concluded.
