India Under-19 cricket coach Rahul Dravid on Monday said his team will have to produce a good all-round performance to outwit Sri Lanka in the ICC World Cup semifinal on Tuesday given that both sides are well aware of what to expect from each other.
The power-packed Indians breezed through Group D with an all-win record against New Zealand, Nepal and Ireland, before crushing Namibia by 197 runs in the quarter-final.
“We know what to expect from them. They have a couple of seamers and a lot of good spinners. They bowl a lot of spin. Having said that, they also know what to expect from us,” said Dravid.
“It should be a good contest. We have been playing very good cricket of late and the lead-up to the tournament was good. We need to play well, irrespective of whether we bat or bowl first. If we play good cricket and bring our A game to the party, we will give ourselves a good chance to win.”
