Sri Lankan Spinner Rangana Herath, who has been Sri Lanka’s stalwart in this difficult period, says the test win in Mirpur was the start of a new journey with the Test team after 12 months of unease.
Speaking to media the Spinner said the previous three years of rebuilding was finally seeing results, particularly with the performance of Kusal, Roshen and Dananjaya in crunch moments.
Herath said, “Not only this series win, even when we played in Dubai we won 2-0 against Pakistan. We had a bad series in India. So I feel we have started another journey with the Test team. Now I can see the proper team with youth and experience, especially Roshen Silva and Akila Dananjaya and Kusal Mendis.”
Herath meanwhile said Chandika Hathurusingha’s appointment as the head coach had already made a bit of difference in the overall thought process of the side.
