Ian Bishop, the former West Indies cricketer serving as a TV commentator in the ongoing Twenty20 Cricket World Cup, says that Sri Lanka will be one of the world’s revolutionary cricket teams in the future. He further said that the resources required to build the Sri Lankan team are now at their maximum and what they need right now is proper guidance. He made these comments in an interview with Daily News at Sheik Zayed Stadium recently.

“Sri Lanka has the players who can go a long way. Wanindu Hasaranga and Mahesh Theekshana are ahead as the best spin bowlers. Fast bowlers including Dushmantha Chameera showed considerable talent. There are no batsmen like Charith Asalanka and Pathum Nissanka in other teams. They should be taken care of very well as they have a bright future and are capable of making big scores for their team.”

“Everyone agrees that the Sri Lankan team has been in a weak position in the past. It is the responsibility of everyone to back them to make them a force to be reckoned with. Look at the last two games they played. Gave England a good fight. The West Indies were outplayed comprehensively in all departments. It was quite visible that they executed a proper plan which brought them success. The West Indies mistakes were rectified before the match and they provided the answers. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should not end there. To reach success it is mandatory to plan against the opponent before the match. The Sri Lankan team did exactly that. “said Ian Bishop.

“In my opinion,Sri Lanka is the best team to take forward in terms of age and talent. They have time to climb to the top. I can predict that in the future this team will be the most challenging cricket team in the world.” Bishop further added.

TV commentator Ian Bishop joined the West Indies team in 1988 and was one of the fastest bowlers in the world. He took 161 wickets in 43 Tests and 118 wickets in 84 ODIs. He played his final Test against England in March 1998. Since then he has had a successful career as a television commentator.
