Muralitharan expressed concern over the poor condition of cricket in Sri Lanka, said- our team has forgotten to win

Colombo
Legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan feels the current Sri Lankan cricket team has over the years forgotten how to register wins. Muraleedharan asserted that the sport in the country is going through a difficult situation at the moment.

Sri Lanka, led by new captain Dasun Shanaka, failed to defend a score of 275 for nine against India on Tuesday. Despite losing 193 runs for seven wickets, India registered a win with three wickets and five balls to spare.

Muralitharan told ‘ESPNcricinfo’, ‘I have told you before, Sri Lankan team has forgotten how to win, over the years they have forgotten how to win. It is a difficult time for them as they do not know how to win.

Leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga took three wickets to take India to 193 for seven in 35.1 overs but Shanaka made a big mistake by saving his over to bowl the last over.

Muralitharan said, ‘I already told you that if Sri Lanka can take three wickets in 10-15 overs then India will have to fight and in fact India will have to fight. Great efforts from Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar enabled them to register the win. Also they (Sri Lanka) made some mistakes. He should not have saved Wanindu Hasaranga’s over and should have bowled before him. He should have tried to get wickets by bowling.

The former veteran spinner said, “If they had got one wicket out of Bhuvneshwar and Chahar, it would have been difficult to score eight to nine runs per over with two lower-order batsmen left.” They made a mistake but this is an inexperienced team.
