Mahela Jayawardene leave Sri lankan side: The Sri Lankan team has suffered a major setback in the T20 World Cup being held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. Mahela Jayawardene has left the team in the middle tournament. He was associated with the Sri Lankan team as a consultant before the World Cup. Sri Lanka qualified for the Super 12 stage by winning two matches in the first round. During this, the role played by Mahela Jayawardene in the team was praised by the captain and support staff.
While talking to the media from UAE, the Sri Lankan legend revealed that it was getting difficult to stay in constant bio bubble and quarantine and he wants to go back home. Mahela Jayawardene said, ‘It is difficult. I have just counted that I have been in quarantine and bio bubble for 135 days since June and I am in the final stage. I completely understand and I said that I will be with the team through technology. I hope one can understand that as a father I haven’t seen my daughter for so long. I definitely want to go back home.
Coaching was also given to Mumbai Indians
The former Sri Lankan captain was the head coach of the Southern Braves team that won The Hundred. He moved to UAE after the tournament and coached Mumbai Indians during the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Sri Lanka will face the Netherlands in their last match of the first round. His match will be in Sharjah on Friday (22 October).
Jayawardene said that we will change the way we play in Sharjah. In Super 12, we have three games in Sharjah, one in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi, so our template and strategy will change depending on the surface.
