Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka praises Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s ‘masterclass innings’ in win

Captain Dasun Shanaka said the likes of Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Nuwan Pradeep and Wanindu Hasaranga are the future of Sri Lanka cricket after newcomers all played their part in sealing a Twenty20 series win in Pakistan.

“We played quality cricket and that’s why we won,” said Sri Lankan skipper Shanaka, standing in for regular captain Lasith Malinga who was one of 10 players who missed the tour over security fears.

“Rajapaksa played a masterclass innings. These youngsters should get a good chance after the series and I am sure selectors will look at it.”
