The team that perform well can win the game and T -20 game is like a lottery said Sri Lankan spin coach Piyal Wijethunga as well as Bangladesh spin coach Rangana Herath yesterday.

when one match loose the next match always going to be a pressure for both players and coaches. All international matches are challenge for us but we have adjust and make good mind set to play the game said Rangana Herath with an exclusive interview to the Daily News.

I am very proud to be Bangladesh coach but I always like my country and my team. As a professional coach I have to realize my part. We knew today’s match is vital for both teams while as a coach I knew my part. I have to give my assistance to the spinners but they have to use their brain to play the game. I think today players are professionals, said Rangana Herath.

Meanwhile Piyal Wijethunga the Sri Lankan spin coach said We lost to Afghanistan while Bangladesh also lost to them. Both days Afghan team performed well with less mistakes and that’ s the type of this T- 20 cricket. Actually we are not finalized our final eleven yet and it will be done after the final training session scheduled to be held yesterday.

They will probably give the same wicket which played yesterday’s match between India and Hong Kong.

We have good spinners while two key experienced spinners Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana are leading the way. In fact Bangladesh have top spinners like Shakib Ul Hasan and their pace attack is more experienced than the ours.

Both sides have good players with experience we can see a good game while better team can win the game, added Piyal Wijethunga who is one time coach to Rangana Herath as well as Muttaih Muralitharan.
