No one thought Sri Lanka would win the World Cup in 1996 – Maheesh Theekshana

International media reported that During the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023, Sri Lankan off-spinner Maheesh Theekshana said that “no one thought Sri Lanka would win the World Cup in 1996. So it is an inspiration, particularly the way they played as a team. We need to get all of this to our generation as well. The way Ranatunga acted as captain, there are a lot of memories there for everyone.” “As a team, we have to do some things as they did in that period of time, but it’s also a new generation, so we have to do things differently. The way that cricket is going is so different, so I think it is our time to do our best and try and win the World Cup,” he added.

If Sri Lanka wants to qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup, they must be in the top two teams in the qualifiers. Sri Lanka won both their warm-up matches against the Netherlands and the USA, and Sri Lanka will play their first match on June 19 against the United Arab Emirates at Bulawayo.
