Opener Lahiru Thirimanne speaking to the media following Sri Lanka’s 98 run defeat at the hands of New Zealand stated that there is still hope for Sri Lanka to advance in the 2015 World Cup.
He said that the team should put the memory of the curtain raiser behind them and focus on their next couple of games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Thrimanne believes that the Lankans will be able to come back strong when they take on their next opponent in Melbourne.
Speaking on slinger Lasith Malinga, Thirimanne noted that Saturday’s bowling performance was not his best but added that his performance during the death overs was something positive that the team could carry forward from the game.
Meanwhile New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson says that the Black Caps were able to get a perfect start to their World Cup campaign. New Zealand have never won a World Cup, but have reached the semi finals on a number of occasions, including 1992 when they last hosted the tournament.
