Dimuth hopeful that spinners will deliver against Australia

Sri Lanka Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne said on arrival from Bangladesh that he hoped his spinners would deliver in the upcoming two-Test series against Australia starting next month.

The three spinners Lasith Embuldeniya, Ramesh Mendis and Praveen Jayawickrama managed just two wickets between them whilst conceding 451 runs in the two Tests against Bangladesh played at Chattogram and Mirpur, whereas Bangladesh’s three spinners Nayeem Hasan, Shakib Al Hasan and Taijul Islam took 20 of the 24 wickets, on pitches that were spin oriented than to pace.
