Sangakkara calls for dramatic revamp of Sri Lankan cricket system

Colombo , Tue, 14 Feb 2012 ANI

Colombo, Feb 14(ANI): Veteran Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara has called for an urgent review of Sri Lanka's cricket system, ahead of the Adelaide ODI against India.


"It's very important to have great first-class structure, I think in Sri Lanka that is something to address very strongly. That is one reason why Australia has been so good over the years, and I think that is an example that you can't dismiss," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Sangakkara, as saying.


"I think it's a case of where you really need to sit down and assess your first-class system and not just copy something, but take the lessons from it and adapt it to something that works really for you. In Sri Lanka we need to do that very quickly," he added.


Sri Lankan cricket has had six one-day captains in the past decade, and with the recent resignation of Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene has taken over as captain.


"The way the players think and the way the people who make decisions sometimes don't add up. But that is the way cricket has always been. Dilshan unfortunately decided to resign and then we have gone back to Mahela, which at this time is probably a very good decision," he said.


"We need grounding and a tighter structure as to how we're going to progress over the next three years. And once you have that set, I think it's going to be easier for anyone else like Angelo Mathews, who will probably take over," he added. (ANI)
