Post Match Presentation.
Dhananjaya de Silva is the Player of the Match: “I am very happy to contribute. In my mind, I wanted to bat till the 20th over. I thought this was my opportunity. When you play against India, it’s very tough.”
Shikhar Dhawan: The surface had turn and it was stopping a bit. Of course, we knew one batsman was short and we knew we had to construct the innings smartly and we had to content ourselves at some point. But yeah, we were 10-15 runs short. I am very proud of the boys because we gave a very good fight. That never dying attitude and taking the game to the last game while defending just 132, hats off to both bowlers and batters.
Dasun Shanaka: I thought if we could contain them to a low total, we could chase it. We were not able to capitalise in the first six overs. But DDS and Wanindu Hasaranga bailed us out. I should thank the BCCI and SLC for this opportunity because this is a huge opportunity for young guys in these times.
