KARACHI - Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawerdene looked confident enough to grab his chances against Pakistan on his last test series as captain. He hoped that his team would carry the winning momentum of the ODI series into the test here. Sri Lanka won the best of three ODIs played about three weeks ago 2-1. The visitors are returning to Pakistan to play the test rubber which was organized in two parts. Speaking at the arrival media briefing on Sunday, the Sri Lankan skipper said that the contests would be interesting one. "I would like to see how Pakistan would fare in tests after a long lay off. The series would be a great challenge for us," he added. He said Pakistan has quality team and would be interesting to see the new skipper Younis Khan's approach. He said he did not feel that his teams 4-1 drubbing at the hands of India at home recently would in any manner affect the teams performance here. Sri Lanka had different team than the one which played against India and more over his team would have different approach in the test series, he added. "India won the ODI series because it was a better team. For the last couple of years India had improved a lot and playing well. They played really well against the host in recent ODI series in the Island," he opined. To a question on Ajantha Mendis, he said he had to learn much more and use new tactics. When asked about his thought on Pakistan batsman Muhammad Yousuf who would be missing the series, Jayawerdene said he preferred to talk about things that were in his hand than comment about those things that was in the hands of the opposition. On quitting captaincy, he said he was mulling over the idea for quite some time. He felt that time was ideal for him to leave and hand over the reins to some one who would take the island nation into the 2011 World Cup. He dodged the query about whom he thought would be right replacement for him as captain and said it was for selectors to make a decision but hinted at Kumara Sangakkara as the next skipper. "Win here would be an icing on the cake after the 2-1 ODIs triumph," said Jayawerdene. Earlier, the Sri Lankan team arrived here two hours behind their arrival schedule early in the morning. The media briefing was to be held at half past three but was shifted forward by two hours to give more rest to the captain. The Sri Lankan team would have its nets here on Monday noon at the National Stadium to get prepared for the two-day warm up match against Patrons XI at DHA ground where one test against Zimbabwe was organized many years ago. Shahid Afridi is leading Patrons XI warm up starting February 17. In the meantime Pakistan test probable started training at the faraway Pakistan Steel mills ground. Pakistan skipper Younis Khan decided to hold the brief training and conditioning camp away from the media glare because he felt that presence of media at the training nets distract the players.
