Pothas blasts batsmen for lacking character

Sri Lanka's coach Nic Pothas has blasted his team for lack of character after losing the ODI series to Pakistan with two games to spare. Sri Lanka lost their tenth ODI in a row when they suffered a seven-wicket defeat to Pakistan at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday to concede a 3-0

Batsman are very negative in approach. If left handers are too hard to bat against this attack then there are lot of right handers. Like Munaweera,Sadeera,Ashan Priyanjan, Dasun Shanka. When they choose this squad i felt that was not powerfully enough in batting. There were no one to bat in middle overs.

This is the type of coaching needed. Tough approach.

What a coach!? Great way to talk about your team! Great indication of the coaches attitude towards the team. This is obviously why the team Does not gel. During Ford's tenure, no matter how often the batsmen failed, never did he speak against them. Pothas's comments will only deteriorate the team's confidence further. Looks at what they'v now done to Kusal Mendis! Such a great talent.... ruined his confidence, and as soon as he is out of form, he's dropped! By the same logic, we should probably drop Gurusinha and Pothas for their failure to perform! Since Gurusinha's arrival, it's been disastrous
