We have a lot of hard work to do - Ford

Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford said that the Lankan team has a lot of hard work to do in the remaining two days and they will have to bat extremely well to put pressure back on England. Ford said so after the third day’s play of the second test between England and Sri Lanka. He also was of the view that Sri Lanka had another tough day where England piled a lot of runs but came back strongly to dismiss the opposition before the close of play.

Sri Lanka who had a another long day in the field were a bit sloppy in the field, missing a few chances and couple of over throws which provided to be crucial. When a question was posed by me as to have Sri Lanka been trying to improve on their fielding and catching which was below par during the last CB series as well as the Asia cup and today as well, Ford replied “the boys have been trying hard to improve on the catching and we won the Galle test because we took some blinders”. "Today was a long day on the field for the boys so a couple of chances went begging,but we will continue to improve on fielding”

Ford also commented that he was reasonably satisfied with the bowling of Dhammika Prasad and Suranga Lakmal who were inconsistent with lines and lengths and gave away a lot of runs and weren’t really threatening the English batsmen.” Kevin Pietersen played magnificently and the pace bowlers didn’t have much on the wicket for them.” Randiv has a lot of potential but it is unfair to compare him to the likes of Greame Swann, he was bowling well in Galle.”
