Sri Lanka spinner Maheesh Theekshana feels that Sri Lanka have most of their bases covered in the bowling department for ICC World Cup 2023. This is the reason why Maheesh Theekshana also feels that Sri Lanka have a very good chance to win the trophy.
ICC World Cup 2023 takes place in India from October 5. Sri Lanka are also part of the tournament, which will witness a battle among 10 teams. Since the tournament takes place in India, Sri Lanka will be a powerful team with their spin attack on spin-friendly Indian conditions.
However, most of the fans and cricket experts do not consider Sri Lanka as one of the favorites to win the ICC World Cup 2023. Sri Lanka did not get a direct qualification for the tournament. They won the final of World Cup qualifiers to earn a berth in the tournament.
We Have Most Of Our Bases Covered In Bowling Department: Maheesh Theekshana
In an exclusive chat with Revsportz, Sri Lanka spinner Maheesh Theekshana was asked how he feels that there is not much talk about Sri Lanka in ICC World Cup 2023. However, they have a great bowling attack for Indian conditions.
To this, Maheesh Theekshana explained how Sri Lanka have all their bases covered in the bowling department for ICC World Cup 2023 and they have a great chance to win the title.
“That’s why I said to you that we have a very good chance. Take a look at the pace bowling. In Dushmantha [Chameera] and Lahiru Kumara, we have experience and pace. Matheesha [Pathirana] is also bowling fast, and we have seen in the IPL he can get key wickets for us”.
“Dilshan Madhushanka adds variety to the attack. In spin, Wanindu and I are very confident of doing well in Indian conditions. So, if you see, we have most of our bases covered in the bowling department, the right-arm spinner said.
Theekshana will be a crucial spinner for Sri Lanka in ICC World Cup 2023. Sri Lanka will be led by Dasun Shanaka in the tournament. However, the squad is yet to be announced. Sri Lanka will play their opening clash of the ICC World Cup 2023 against South Africa on October 7.
