Irfan Pathan Names Sri Lankan Cricketers Who Could Be Dangerous To India


Sri Lankan Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against India in a 3 T20I match series commencing from 3rd January (Tuesday). The island nation doesn’t have a promising record in India where they are yet to win a T20I Series. The skipper Dasun Shanaka has a strenuous task as beating India in their own backyard won’t be easy.

The selection panel has named a second-string squad where senior members like Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma are not a part of the squad. There are chances that the management go in with 3 spinners given Sri Lankan team has got left-handed batters present.

Irfan Pathan on Sri Lanka

Irfan Pathan was having an interaction with Sportskeeda and was asked about Sri Lanka. “Sri Lanka is not that bad a team. We know what they did in the Asia Cup. They really did well. We have to be careful. I really feel that Kusal Mendis, Wanindu Hasaranga as well as Lahiru Kumara – who has got express pace, Maheesh Theekshana – these four-five guys can be real threats. Their captain Dasun Shanaka, I quite like that pick, he is fearless. He has got that long handle as well when he bats.” said Irfan Pathan.

Great Chance for Sri Lanka

The island nation has got an edge over India due to their Asia Cup 2022 win against India. Sri Lanka recently has adopted a fearless approach which has been quite fruitful. The speciality of Sri Lanka is that they have got a long batting lineup that the opposition team cannot take them lightly.

Wanindu Hasaranga can be the ‘X’ factor for Sri Lanka as his IPL experience would come in handy. Shanaka should use him in 3 spells as his 4 overs are quite decisive. It would be interesting to see how the series pans out as both the teams are evenly matched.
