Sanath Jayasuriya is confident he can help his new Worcestershire team-mates turn around their FP t20 campaign.
Speaking on his arrival at New Road, the Sri Lanka star was looking forward to getting into the action in the home game against old rivals Warwickshire.
"Unfortunately, the boys have not done well in the last few matches, so we need to do well in this one," he said.
"If you enjoy your cricket, then you will perform. So, I hope the boys will come out and play their natural game."
After an encouraging win over Yorkshire Carnegie in their opening game of the T20 this season, Worcestershire have since lost four successive matches.
Jayasuriya has arrived at New Road as a replacement for the Australian all-rounder Steve Smith whose international commitments meant his stay with Worcestershire was a brief one.
The Sri Lanka star is a keen fan of the T20 format and feels it has become increasingly important to the top players.
"If you look at the IPL, it is a big tournament in India and the boys have been playing really good cricket," he told BBC Hereford and Worcester.
"At the same time the cricketers can earn some good money.
"T20 has a big role to play at the moment as far as the players are concerned," he said.
Jayasuriya is of the view that players are starting to adapt to the shortest form of the game and the different skills that are needed to be successful in T20 cricket.
"Basically, it is a batsman's game but it is sometimes tough for the batsmen, too," he said.
"The bowlers are getting sharper and they need to bowl yorkers really well.
"So the bowlers are getting sharper and they are improving every day," he added.
