Sri Lankans will target Indian bowling: Jayasuriya

Cardiff, June 19 (IANS) Former captain Sanath Jayasuriya said Sri Lanka will target the Indian bowlers during the Champions Trophy semifinal slated for Thursday at the Sophia Gardens here.

“Their (India) bowling isn’t the best, so we need to have a very good plan. The goal was to make the semifinals. Anything can happen now,” Jayasuriya told the BBC.

Jayasuriya, who led Sri Lanka when it shared the Champions Trophy with India in 2002, said Sri Lanka are peaking at the right time.

Sri Lanka lost to New Zealand in their opening match but came back strongly and made the semifinals with wins over England and Australia.

“I think the side is really coming up. The batting and the bowling unit has been doing really well for the last two years. I’m happy the way things are going,” Jayasuriya said.
