Sri Lanka wary of Luke Wright and Eoin Morgan, says Mahela Jayawardene

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene on Sunday said his side will be wary of England batsmen Luke Wright and Eoin Morgan, ahead of their ICC World T20 Super Eights clash.

“Those two guys have been around for a while. Eoin has been playing regularly, Luke not so regularly but he has been travelling a lot,” Jayawardene said.

“Luke has played lot of T20 cricket also and England is an exciting team when we saw them play in Colombo. They have some quality players and it should be a very good game,” he was quoted as saying by Reuters.

Sri Lanka thrashed the tournament favourites West Indies by nine wickets to reach the top spot in the Group 1 of the ongoing tournament.

The Lankan skipper said his side is ready to face defending champions England, who thrashed New Zealand by six wickets on the same day to keep their hopes alive.

“In any game winning is a good habit, we need to get the momentum. We are excited to play defending champions England,” Jayawardene said.

“They will throw us a different challenge and we are looking forward to it.” (Cricket Country)
