Jayasuriya will be given every chance till he gets back to form - Sangakkara

Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has defended veteran dasher Sanath Jayasuriya’s horrific batting form and said that the team management will be patient with the 40-year-old till he gets back to form, whenever that will happen.
"It's always a concern when a batsman's out of form," Sangakkara said at the post match press conference after the Twenty20 loss to New Zealand on Friday night. "But we all know what he can do and what he has done. We have to give him every chance to get back in there and score runs.''
Sangakkara had also admitted that the fragility of the Sri Lankan top order was hidden by Tillekratne Dilshan’s magnificent form and was exposed when Dilshan failed.
"When a batsman's in form, he always seems to be the guy scoring the runs at the top. Unfortunately the other guys haven't been supporting him as they can," said Sangakkara. "They have the ability to do so but unfortunately we haven't had that. It's a learning process, form comes and goes but I think the players we do have are well capable of getting us the runs and the starts we need to win."
Sangakkara also conceded that his team was outplayed by the Black Caps. "It was a great pitch, but we lost too many wickets and were not able to build the kind of partnerships you need. We tried everything and we still came up short. A loss is always a concern. Once you're outplayed, you have to accept it. You learn from it and move on."
