WT20: Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews urges patience

New Delhi: Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews has made no bones about the fact that the team has let the country down with their recent performances which resulted in their ouster from the World T20.

Sri Lanka has won only against UAE and Afghanistan in their last 10 T20s failing to beat any Test playing nation. “I think it has been a disappointing few months for Sri Lankan cricket. We have let down the fans, let down the whole country.

We haven’t played good cricket at all,” Mathews said.

England beat Sri Lanka by 10 runs to progress to the semi-finals. “All we can do is stick to a combination, not try and change the team too much. We should try and pick about 20 players and re-evaluate them, say after 6 months.

Give them opportunity to settle down and then try and see what they have come up with, in terms of performances. Then we can take a call as quick decisions won’t solve this matter.

We need to be patient,” said Mathews.
