SRI Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne hopes to ‘dominate’ England in the forthcoming Test series, despite seeing his side beaten inside three days by South Africa, to complete a 2-0 series whitewash.
The injury-hit tourists lost by ten wickets at the Wanderers but in home conditions — and with Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal and Suranga Lakmal all expected to return to fitness — Karunaratne (pictured) is confident of a different outcome.
‘Playing in our home conditions will be a lot better for us,’ he said. ‘We have a good spinning line-up who will make full use of our conditions. Hopefully we can dominate the English.’
