Dinesh Chandimal credits Hashim Amla after banishing South Africa demons

Dinesh Chandimal gave credit to a conversation with Hashim Amla during Sri Lanka’s 2016-17 tour of South Africa after compiling his highest Test score in two-and-a-half years – and his highest in ‘SENA’ countries since May 2016.

Chandimal had struggled for form in South Africa during the 2016-17 series, averaging 14.16 and managing 85 runs across six innings. He missed the 2018-19 series altogether, being dropped after a lean run in New Zealand and Australia, but matched his run aggregate from his previous tour on the first day of the 2020-21 series as Sri Lanka put themselves in the box seat in Centurion.
