Captain prepares for next challenge

Jayawardene looks towards Australia

Cricinfo staff

October 14, 2007



Mahela Jayawardene: 'If you've had a bad period you have to make sure you learn from your mistakes' AFP
Mahela Jayawardene is already looking forward to Sri Lanka's next challenge, a Test series in Australia, after their 107-run victory in the final one-day international against England in Colombo offered a timely boost. Despite going down 3-2 in a contest they had been expected to win, Jayawardene said the way his side bounced back in the final match bodes well for the future.

"We knew we had this in ourselves and we know we are a very good side so it's good that we're off to Australia in 10 days' time and it was a very good boost for us to go with a win," he said. "It was a good start [to the series] and we finished well but we played some really ordinary cricket in between - it was well below par, especially for our standards at home.

"That's something we really want to work at, but I was quite happy with a lot of individual performances. Batsmen should have taken more responsibility in this tournament with the way we played."

Sri Lanka have a poor record in Australia having struggled with the extra pace and bounce in the wickets on previous tours. But the home side will take the field in a Test for the first time since the retirements of Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath, while Jayawardene feels there is time to adjust to conditions before the opening encounter at Brisbane on November 8.

"What we're going to get in Australia will be totally different," he said. "We've got two warm-up games before the first Test and that's something for us to work on. We've got two or three weeks before the first Test match so we've got ample time to get back into things.

"This is what cricket is all about. If you've had a bad period you have to make sure you learn from your mistakes - that's what being a professional cricketer is all about these days. You don't have that much time to think about what went wrong, we have to get back into things straight away."

Sri Lankan spirits lifted

Sri Lanka embarks for Australia in the next fortnight with confidence restored following its emphatic victory in the final one-day international against England.

Despite having already lost the series, captain Mahela Jayawardene is convinced the 107-run victory at the Premadasa Stadium will give his side the jolt required to arrive in Australia with spirits high.

Outplayed in the three previous matches by an improving England side, Sri Lanka bounced back strongly with man of the match Dilhara Fernando claiming 6-27 as the tourists lost 7-15.

It is that kind of performance which Jayawardene knows it will need to repeat if it is to compete during a two-Test series and eight one-day internationals against India and Australia before returning for a three-Test home series against England before Christmas.

"We knew we had this in ourselves and we know we are a very good side so it's good that we're off to Australia in 10 days time and it was a very good boost for us to go with a win," said Jayawardene.

"It was a good start [to the series] and we finished well but we played some really ordinary cricket in between - it was well below par, especially for our standards at home."

"That's something we really want to work at, but I was quite happy with a lot of individual performances. Batsmen should have taken more responsibility in this tournament with the way we played."

Sri Lanka's batting, for so long the strength of their side, was continually undermined by England's attack and it was dismissed for less than 220 in three of the five matches in the series.

It recorded only five half-centuries during the series with Chamara Silva's 70 during last night's victory being their highest individual score in the five matches.

It is a record which Jayawardene knows is not good enough if they are to compete against Australia, who beat them convincingly in May's World Cup final in Barbados, at both Test and one-day level.

"What we're going to get in Australia will be totally different," explained Jayawardene. "We've got two warm-up games before the first Test and that's something for us to work on.

"We've got two or three weeks before the first Test match so we've got ample time to get back into things.

"This is what cricket is all about. If you've had a bad period you have to make sure you learn from your mistakes - that's what being a professional cricketer is all about these days."

"You don't have that much time to think about what went wrong, we have to get back into things straight away."

Jayawardene also believes the forthcoming home Test series against England, which starts in Kandy on December 1, may also be dominated by bowlers and will be an indication of the improvements seamers have made to their games around the world.

"The tracks will be much better, but a lot of fast bowlers around the world have improved a lot," he added. "They've got a lot of different variations.

"They realise that if they are to survive in these kind of conditions they have to come up with different tactics and they have improved."

Hi. I am going to close this topic for the moment and open it when the series starts. This will save a lot of confusion because Australia is already in the middle of a series.
