All-rounder Soumya Sarkar has joined the individual practice in the third phase. Soumya feels he is preparing well and confident about playing as per the expectation in the Sri Lanka Tour. “I played last time back in march in T20s against Zimbabwe and performed well. So i will be looking forward carry on the good run. Also i believe my experience of playing in Sri Lanka in the past will be helpful.’
It was difficult for all the players around the world for staying at the home in the last few months without any kind of cricket to play. Recently England became the first team to host Test series against West Indies after the COVID-19 restriction stopped international cricket earlier of the year. Watching the series, Soumya was waiting for returning to the field.
‘Its a great news that finally we are going to play. Watching the matches in England, i felt bad and waiting for our turn. At the same time it was also a relieve that at least somewhere cricket is back. I was so happy to know yesterday (August 12) that our Sri Lanka tour is confirmed.
