In his first press conference ahead of the tour of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka's newly-appointed head coach Chris Silverwood has stressed upon his philosophy for the side. As per Silverwood, the intent of scoring runs is an area where the Sri Lanka batters need to improve.

Silverwood recently took up the role as the head coach of the Sri Lanka men's side, following his departure from the England job in the aftermath of Ashes disaster. Silverwood's first assignment will be an away tour to Bangladesh, with the two sides vying for crucial World Test Championship points.
