Sri Lanka ‘sick and tired’ of talking about transition, says interim coach Pothas – Nic Pothas urged Sri Lankan cricket players to move on with their performances on the field as the team is battling with consistency since the retirement of its batting stars.
The Sri Lankan cricket team is “sick and tired” of talking about them being in transition. The sentiments were expressed by Sri Lanka’s interim coach Nic Pothas.
Pothas said that it has now been more than two years since Sri Lanka’s legends like Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene have retired.
“We are probably in an era where we are sick and tired of talking about transition. Sick and tired of about talking about it as a learning period,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Pothas as saying.
He said that it was time to go out and perform, and that was the real challenge. “You are going to meet a world-class team. We have to move forward,” he added.
Pothas has urged the players to move on with their performances on the field as the team is battling with consistency since the retirement of its batting stars.
Sri Lankan team has suffered loss in every single game against India on home soil, which included three Tests, five ODIs and a T20I.
The team will now aim resurgence and regeneration as it all set to face Pakistan in a two-match Test series in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
