Huge Responsibility to Fill Mahela Jayawardene's Void: Lahiru Thirimanne.
Sri Lankan left-hander Lahiru Thirimanne says he has big boots to fill as he is slowly getting into the groove to bat at the crucial number four position vacated by former captain Mahela Jayawardene, who retired from Tests in August 2014.
Thirimanne said that batting at No.4 is a big challenge for him, because that was Mahela Jayawardene's spot.
He added that he needs to work very hard to live up to that, and that it is a position that's very valuable for the team, because, they are used to some top performances from their No.4 batsman.
The 2nd Test will be played at the Basin Reserve, Wellington, from January 3rd.
