Former Sri Lankan cricketer and the current coach of the country’s women’s team, Hashan Tillakaratne, has expressed his desire to meet Pakistan’s legendary cricketer Javed Miandad during their tour of Pakistan.
The Sri Lanka women’s team is scheduled to play three T20Is and as many ODIs against Pakistan, starting from tomorrow.
“I would really love to meet Miandad. He helped me a lot in my batting career,” Hashan stated.
The Sri Lankan coach also heaped praises on Pakistan and expressed his gratitude for always standing next to Sri Lanka in desperate times.
“Pakistan has always helped us. I consider Pakistan as big brother,” he further added.
Talking about his team’s preparations ahead of the T20I series against Pakistan, Tillakaratne said they have some really good players with solid preparation.
“We have prepared ourselves strongly for this series which is very important for us. Our players haven’t played cricket for the last two years but some really talented young girls excite us a lot for this series. We look forward to some competitive cricket,” he added.
