Sri Lanka Skipper Dinesh Chandimal and England Captain Eoin Morgan expressed their confidence ahead of the five-match ODI series between the two teams which begins next week.    

Chandimal, addressing a media conference in Colombo yesterday, said that his team is determined to put up an improved performance in this vital series.    

“We have sorted out our shortcomings after the debacle in the Asia Cup. We are confronting a team that is ranked number one and it’s going to be a big challenge for us,” said Chandimal.

“They have performed with tremendous success in the recent times and we will have to forget the past and take up the challenge,” added Chandimal.

Meanwhile, England Skipper Morgan said his team is brimming with confidence following their recent success at home.   

“We are not going to take this tour lightly as we know the sub-continent pitches are so much difficult and it’s going to be a challenge and we are well prepared and will be serious in our approach,” revealed Morgan.
