Focus on Sri Lankan seamers’ death overs bowling


Having roamed around the northern part of India for more than a month, the Sri Lankan cricket team is finally in the south. The national cricket team conducted a training session at the Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium here in Visakhapatnam yesterday ahead of the decisive third and final ODI on Sunday. Visakhapatnam is the financial capital of Indian state of Andhra. The Sri Lankans will conduct another training session today morning and will be focusing heavily on their death overs bowling.

On a green top at Dharamsala having rolled the Indian batsmen over for a paltry 112 runs, the seamers were exposed to harsher realities as the Punjab Cricket Association provided a belter for the second game in Mohali.

Having identified the conditions well in advance, the Sri Lankans fired in the wide yorkers in the last ten overs, but once Rohit Sharma countered the tactic by shuffling across the stump, receiving the ball on the full, Suranga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep had no plan B.
