‘We need 300 to give our bowlers a chance’ – Karunaratne

Dimuth Karunaratne believes Sri Lanka should have batted with more intent through the middle session, after having gone to lunch without loss.

“There was a bit of swing in that second session, and a little seam, but I think we could have used a different approach because we’d had a good start, having made 89 in the first session,” he said.

“Maybe we could have been more of a threat to their bowlers after lunch. We should have batted a bit more positively, because when the runs are ticking over on the board, even if wickets fall, it’s not such a big deal.”
