The fear of failure factor has come out. They don’t look confident, they don’t look hungry enough in the middle.

Pallekele:  Former skipper Mahela Jayawardene feels the fear of failure is impeding the growth of the Sri Lankan cricket team, which is currently being outplayed by India in an ongoing series.

“I feel the team’s confidence is low. The fear of failure factor has come out. They don’t look confident, they don’t look hungry enough in the middle. They need to address that and find solutions very quickly,” Jayawardene told Cricinfo.            

 

“I am sure the guys would be very disappointed with their performance in the Test series. It was a great challenge for them to test themselves against the number one team,” added Jayawardene.
