“He obviously took us a bit by surprise by coming in and look, I thought he played really well,” Balbirnie said after the game.

“We obviously set fields that we’ve backed over a couple of years, and he kind of countered that and maybe caught us in the hop a bit but that’s what happens when you play against world-class cricketers. They can do that to you.”

Balbirnie singled out the Sri Lankan pacers for praise and conceded that they were undercooked to handle genuine pace on skiddy surfaces.

“We don’t prepare for it, we don’t get wickets like this,” he pointed out.

“They bowled good short balls, but that’s what you expect in international cricket. We’ve got to find ways to cope with that and pretty quickly,” he added. (Agencies)
