The Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford has warned that the team needs to start producing cricketers capable of replacing the star names in the side otherwise they will struggle to compete at international level.

Ford's assessment comes in the wake of captain Mahela Jayawardene stating that he would reassess his future after the current tour of Australia.

Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Thilan Samaraweera, who form the core of the team's batting, are all in their mid-thirties and the team needs to guard against being hit by mass retirements.

Ford praised the role played by the senior figures in the dressing room at setting an example for the younger players coming into the game.
