India coach Rahul Dravid and Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka have an on-field chat

Sri Lanka’s new white-ball Captain Dasun Shanaka was seen having a one-on-one chat on the R. Premadasa ground during a rain break in the third ODI between Sri Lanka and India on Friday (23).

What did the renowned Indian maestro tell the young Sri Lankan skipper?

“You are leading the side very well. The entire team is praiseworthy,” Dravid had told Shanaka, Indian media sources revealed yesterday (24), quoting Sri Lanka team sources.

They said Dravid had told Shanaka that India had been “surprised” by the much-improved Sri Lanka side while also conceding that they were outplayed on Tuesday in the second ODI, which Sri Lanka lost after a close fight.
