Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

“What I’m going to tell the players is to go and give it everything. If we play fearlessly, even when we are practicing, then you will be able to play the same way in a match. That’s what I’ve told the team. If we are fearful, we will fall even further,” he said.

Perera said he wants to build a culture in which players have confidence. “I am trying to build a culture where the players have a lot of confidence,” he said.

The captain said that the selectors have asked him to take responsibility and get big scores.

“What the selectors told me when they appointed me was that I often get a 50 or a 60 and get out without getting to a 100. I accept that,” he added.

“If I score a hundred, the chances of winning the match go up. You can’t get a 100 every game, but when you get a start, you need to make sure you convert. They expect me to take that responsibility.”
