Groups that formed within the team are no longer there – chief selector

Sri Lanka chief selector Asantha de Mel

Chairman of selectors Ashantha de Mel showered praise on the leadership qualities of Dimuth Karunaratne and said that as captain he has been able to get the team together as one unit and perform successfully […] Talking of Karunaratne’s captaincy, De Mel said, “Dimuth has done very well. He has the knack to bring all the players together. His role at the top has been made easy because he has two attacking batsmen Avishka Fernando and Kusal Perera. He is leading the side well and his bowling changes are effective. He gets on with all the players. You can see that the groups that had formed inside the team are not there now. They are playing as a team and they are all together. They are more relaxed. He has created a better dressing room atmosphere.”
