Sri Lanka Cricket Quotes

"But straight after Kusal Mendis got out, I got out, and then Dhananjaya got out. I thought that was a bit of a turning point. We needed a partnership with Dinesh Chandimal. Either me or Dhananjaya had to set it up for Thisara Perera and Milinda Siriwardana to go out there in the 43rd or 44th over and get those quick runs. It wasn't easy to get quick runs. The boundaries were 80 or 85 yards away. We needed to be scrappy, but unfortunately we were short 20 or 30 runs"

"We did well to track down that total. They've got plenty of options and we played exceptionally well to get the team across the line. We made the call to take on the new ball. I think in the subcontinent that's the way to play. It was nice to help the team get off to a flier"

"It's just pure talent, with the young batsmen I suppose Dhananjaya has played a bit of first-class cricket, but Kusal Mendis hasn't. We've got to take that chance with some people sometimes, and it's paid off. You can see the way they batted in extreme conditions - it was turning square. They had Nathan Lyon, Jon Holland, and Steve O'Keefe in the first game. Mitchell Starc has been outstanding in the last three or four weeks as well. The calmness and composure of Dhananjaya at No. 7 was great. He handled that pressure well. Kusal Perera also played some brisk knocks, so the future is bright"
