Pak team manager says players targeting quick turnaround after losing second ODI
Islamabad, June 12(ANI): Pakistan team manager Naveed Akram Cheema has said the team is targeting a quick turnaround in the one-day international (ODI) series against Sri Lanka after losing the second match of the series.
Pakistan reached Colombo on Sunday, where they will play the remaining three matches, with a practice session held on Monday ahead of the third match that takes place on Wednesday at the Premadasa.
Cheema said an all-round performance from Thisara Perera helped Lanka clinch a big win over them.
"We made a lot of mistakes. But the team is working hard to avoid those. We sat down after the match and looked at our performance in each department," The Express Tribune quoted Cheema, as saying.
"Also, Perera was outstanding in the match and played winning a role along with Dilshan. We have to read the opponents as well as our performance and will go better prepared this time to avoid further damage," he added.
Cheema added that despite the huge loss, the team was not panicking and remained motivated to win the series. He also saw positive for his team, as Colombo will be hosting the rest of three matches.
"Although our players are professionals, they are glad to be here in Colombo as we won't need to travel any more," Cheema said. (ANI)
