London: Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya has said that team had put behind the Lahore attack and were firmly focussed on the Twenty20 World Cup.
In a conversation with at the nets, Jayasuriya said: "It's all history now. It has been an unfortunate incident and we have to keep these things behind and look ahead and see what's in the present and in the future.
"We're looking forward to this particular tournament and we want to do well and play well here."
Jayasuriya said the IPL had given a lot of Lankan players great match practice.
"IPL was the key; the preparation is really good. IPL has given a lot of confidence," he said, while refusing to pinpoint any team as a favourite.
"In Twenty20 you can't predict. It's a short version of the game and some unexpected team can come and play well. It's too early to predict who will make it to the final."
The batsman, who had played a crucial role in Sri Lanka's 1996 World Cup title win, said the T20 World Cup was also special to him.
"I always try to play well whenever we get the opportunity. Even this particular series is an unique and special one for me and I'll try and do the best for my country," he said.
