The all-around bowler, Waninda Hasaranga, said Sri Lanka would have to deal with the “weakness” in the bottom of the 2220 World Cup this year after holding a small total in two games against Australia.
The Australian world champions took an improper 2-0 lead in the three-match series after limiting Sri Lanka to 128 and 124 in the first two games in Colombo.
“It is a weakness in our lower and lower ranks,” said Hasaranga after the three-goal loss on Wednesday.
“Now they are a bit out of the game and we have to accept that.
“Our goal is the World Cup. If we can add 10% more on the sidelines in the next game, and in the series ahead, we will be in a much better place. “
Hasaranga claimed 4-33 to reduce Australia to 99-7 in the second leg, but a small total in Sri Lanka meant that the tourists still won with 13 balls to spare.
“If we can make a regular game out of a game like this when they were just chasing 125, it means our cone is in good shape,” said the 24-year-old.
“I think in October we will be better as we play more and more games.
Pallekele hosts the third and final Twenty20 on Saturday.
The Twenty20 World Cup will be played in Australia in October-November.
