Sri Lankan Cricket: The new coach Chris Silverwood is piling up the things where the team will be looking forward to improving themselves. ECB had sacked him out from his coaching role after an embarrassing loose in the recent Ashes series. After being discharged from the English cricket team, Silverwood has now joined the Lankan setup. He could provide beneficial input to the Sri Lankan Cricket at its developing stage.

Although Team Sri Lanka has shown their fighting character in recent times. Also in the ICC T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka was one of the sides who had impressed the cricket fraternity with their competitive performance. This did not help them at the very best in the points table but should have increased their confidence level. Also, after a long time, we are seeing such a number of Sri Lankan players in the IPL stage.

The major thing that Silverwood had pointed out is the intent to score big. On this matter he first wants to work with the Sri Lankan side. Then he mentioned players need to play with more freedom without having any stress. Talking about the increase in strike rate, Silverwood addressed that being smart and positive toward own batting will decrease the dot-ball percentage. Then he talked about that he needs to first boost the dressing room with confidence so that he play bravely.

“I have spent the last couple of weeks just digging through stats, looking at how we can improve. One of them is the intent to score. We have to give the batters the confidence to go out there and not fear getting out. That’s not to say we have to be reckless; what I’m saying is we have to bring smarts into that as well. But I do want them to be positive, I want them to be brave. If we go with that attitude, the dot-ball rates will come down and the strike rates will go up, which can only be a good thing,”

Silverwood said as quoted by Cricbuzz
