Sri Lanka coach Chandika Hathurusingha admits that his tenure as Bangladesh coach will hardly have any impact on the tri-series as they are aware of the way he operates. With so much cricket played this day, Hathurusingha feels everybody is aware of each other.

I don’t think so. There’s a lot of information available in cricket these days. The players know each other very well. They also know how I plan and think, so there’s no real advantage,” Hathurusingha said at Mirpur.

Bangladesh has tasted significant success in recent years under Hathurisngha.

The 49-year-old Hathurusingha also admitted that Bangladesh had been a tough side to beat at home.

They have been very, very strong at home. We haven’t lost a series, one series, in the last two and half years. When I say we, I mean Bangladesh. They have been [playing] good cricket in ODIs. They know their roles and game plan well. It is a big challenge for any team to play here.

I think it is very challenging for us. Bangladesh has been really competitive at home lately. It will be a big challenge for us,” Hathurusingha stated.

Chandika Hathurusingha believes that Bangladesh will offer strong challenge in their home conditions.

The former Bangladesh coach also revealed that Bangladesh is now not dependent on one or two players individual players, and can cross the rope even if big names doesn’t click.

“You can’t judge Bangladesh team with one or two players. They are important players but it doesn’t mean that it is a one or two-player team,” he mentioned.

Hathurusingha has been a topic of discussion ever since he left the country. However, he refrained from talking about the reason behind his resignation.

“Unfortunately I am not going to go into details about my professional commitment or my dealings with BCB. So I can’t answer that,” Hathurusingha concluded.
