“We have done all that we could have to counter attack. Whatever we would expect in the Test series. I hope our strategies will work,” Ratnayake instructed journalists after Sri Lanka drew the two-day excursion recreation towards the Board President’s XI right here.

“We can only plan but it’s about executing them on the field. It’s a huge challenge. It’s not only skipper Virat Kohli but we have come with specific plans for each Indian player. We always go with plans but can we execute the plans, at what stage and at what point. Hopefully that works to our benefit,” he added.

Sri Lanka suffered a Zero-Nine humiliation at house around the 3 codecs previous this yr.

The Islanders will play their first Test in India since 2009-10 after they take the sphere on November 16 on the Eden Gardens right here. They have a lopsided document within the nation as they’re but to win from 16 appearances, having misplaced 10 and drawn six of their head-to-head document spanning from 1982 to 2017.

Terming it a “friendly rivalry” with India, the previous pacer mentioned: “It’s unfortunate we have not won a Test here. It’s still a healthy rivalry. We have gained a lot from India, we are thankful for that. It would be interesting to win a Test here. We are taking it as a challenge.”

The 53-year-old mentioned wet situation in Sri Lanka had hampered their preparation.

“We are very privilege to have a match like this. We have new players but they have been in the circuit for a while. India is new for them as we are touring for a Test series after eight years.”

“Also, Sandakan must paintings on his keep watch over, must beef up on just a little bit. It’s a self belief factor. Once he will get the boldness he’ll be superb.”

Ratnayake, then again, is undecided whether or not the Lankans would pick out Sandakan for the primary Test.

“It is dependent whether or not we will be able to play him or no longer. We will make a decision to have that additional spinner only a day prior to the fit. Eden has been a just right observe any means previously. It seamed in the previous. We will see it the next day to come and hope to grasp what is on be offering,” he mentioned.

“Angelo is available in as a batsman. We have Dasun Shanaka, Dhananjaya de Silva and Roshan Silva to fill within the allrounder’s function. He has no longer bowled in a Test for some time. I do not assume he’ll bowl. We take him as a white ball bowler we will be able to be having a look him to bowl in most effective ODIs.”

Ratnayake mentioned his bowlers have labored on the opposite swing with the SG ball.

“Reverse swing is without doubt one of the issues which we have now labored on. It’s were given the texture of the Duke ball, it is other and we are being used to that.”

Stating that was once is having a look ahead to talk to India’s leader coach Ravi Shastri and bowling marketing consultant Bharat Arun, Ratnayake mentioned: “I have performed towards them, we all know each and every different from the age of 16-17. I will be able to surely meet them after fits
