Malinga and Jayawardene hope SLPL will be a good preparation for ICC T20 World Cup 2012

The Sri Lankan Premiere League 2012, first edition of the T20 league in Sri Lanka is running successfully and players like Lasith Malinga, Mahela Jayawardene feels that, the SLPL 2012 ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2012 will be very helpful and that would certainly help the team’s performance in contending better for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup starting this September in Sri Lanka. The T20 World Cup to be played this year will be hosted by Sri Lanka and SLPL being played in Sri Lanka will help the home team to perform better as they will be used to the conditions and are getting a lot of practice on T20 cricket with this league. But Malinga, whose performance is not up to the mark, feels that he would perform better in the world cup which is to be commenced shortly on 16th of the next month.

On the other hand, the Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardena feels that the team’s preparation is good with the help of this league and is somewhat worried on the injuries of the players and concludes that there are more positives to be carried on than the negatives and that the team is stronger and definitely a good contender for winning the ICC T20 World Cup 2012 with good preparation and home advantage.
