IND vs SL: “It’s disappointing” – Dasun Shanaka after losing 3rd ODI against India


The Sri Lankan cricket team suffered a huge defeat in the 3rd ODI. The island nation lost the match by 317 runs and whitewashed in the ODI Series. No batsman scored 20 odd runs in the steep 391 run chase, which is unacceptable in modern cricket.

Earlier, Shubman Gill broke his 2nd century and scored 116 runs in 97 balls where he hit 14 fours and 2 sixes. Then Virat Kohli scored a magnificent strike of 166 runs in 110 balls. The right-handed batter was in beast mode as he hit 13 fours and 8 sixes.

Skipper Dasun Shanaka would be hugely disappointed in both the team and his own performance. There was no fight and set up from the batters and it seemed like they weren’t up for the challenge. Shanaka managed to score 11 points in 26 balls where he managed to hit 2 fours.

Sri Lanka would be disappointed and it wouldn’t be wrong to say the team needs a little revamp as management has to go back to the drawing board. The island nation missed the fire in their eyes as the field didn’t have so many demons that the team gets folded for 73 runs and that too within 23 overs.

It’s disappointing – Dasun Shanaka

During the post-match presentation, Dasun Shanaka was asked about the match. “It’s disappointing. Not the game we would have liked, but it happens sometimes. Bowlers and batters must learn both. How to pick wickets on these fields and how to score runs. No idea about that (about the updates on Bandara and Vandersay).” said Dasun Shanaka.

Playing positive cricket is key – Dasun Shanaka

“Playing positive cricket is key. If the guys showed intention, bowling will be different. When we play international cricket, we have to play on purpose. I would like to congratulate the Indian team for playing cricket at this level.” he added.
