Kieron Pollard said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “For us, we’re confident and humble. Humbly trying to find a way to get back our brand of cricket. The World Cup is only a few months away but more importantly is that we bond as a team, we win cricket matches together and we get to understand each and everyone’s game, so that when we end up in a difficult situation, we know exactly how to get out. So yes, the World T20 in October is the focus but we firstly have to deal with what is in front of us,” “You have to play what’s in front of you. They have world class bowlers in their line-up. Lasith [Malinga], first couple overs, he was brilliant. So, you have to look at opportunities where you can score. Next game we may try to go at the seamers, we don’t know. At the end of the day, you have to play what is in front of you and the situation dictates how you play. That’s what we’re going to do. We’re not going to actually plan to target any bowlers in particular. We’re just going to play cricket how it needs to be played; hopefully we tick the right boxes and in the end we can be smiling” External link

Lasith Malinga said : “I am certain Angelo Mathew’s experience will play a significant role in Sri Lanka’s journey towards the World Cup. Similarly, spinner Wanidu Hasaranga will be my key trump card that Sri Lanka can use at the World Cup. Although the loss of Akila Dhananjaya is a great loss, we cannot entirely depend on just one player. In my view, we need to look for alternatives and plan the manner in which we could win matches,” External link

Gautam Gambhir said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “The first ball that Lasith Malinga bowled, I hit it for a boundary. At such times your nerves get settled as well. Whatever nerve was there, it was due to the fact that it was an international game, not because it was a World Cup final,” “It was not just about one or two individuals, but it was about everyone in the dressing room who believed that we could win the World Cup. There couldn’t have been a bigger stage set when you are chasing in the World Cup final that also at home. You never know whether you will get that opportunity ever again.

Kieron Pollard said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “For us, we’re confident and humble. Humbly trying to find a way to get back our brand of cricket. The World Cup is only a few months away but more importantly is that we bond as a team, we win cricket matches together and we get to understand each and everyone’s game, so that when we end up in a difficult situation, we know exactly how to get out. So yes, the World T20 in October is the focus but we firstly have to deal with what is in front of us,” “You have to play what’s in front of you. They have world class bowlers in their line-up. Lasith [Malinga], first couple overs, he was brilliant. So, you have to look at opportunities where you can score. Next game we may try to go at the seamers, we don’t know. At the end of the day, you have to play what is in front of you and the situation dictates how you play. That’s what we’re going to do. We’re not going to actually plan to target any bowlers in particular. We’re just going to play cricket how it needs to be played; hopefully we tick the right boxes and in the end we can be smiling” External link
