KARACHI: Manager Sri Lanka cricket team Brendon Kruppu has said that there would be an even contest between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Test series but Sri Lanka would have an edge in batting over Pakistan.

Talking with Faizan Lakhani of Geo News, the team manager said that the Sri Lankan team has come to Pakistan for playing Test series with high determination but its players feel that the Pakistani cricketers would be proved quite different from ODI cricket.

Replying to a question, Brendon Kruppu said that despite the resignation by captain Mahela Jayawardene did not make any effect on the morale of the team and the players still respect him.
