Bangladesh Under 19s won by 9 wickets (DLS Method)
As it was expected, Sri Lanka has struggled to counter teams in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. The Islanders are surrounded with a lot of concerns but skipper Dimuth Karunaratne isn’t ready to give up as he backed his unit to make it to the final-four stage of the competition.
In his latest interview, the 31-year old decoded the troubles of his team by highlighting the dearth of regular performances from the batting line-up. Karunaratne cited the example of India whose top three usually score the major chunk of team’s total. However, the Colombo born insisted that they just cannot copy India as they have to play within their limitations and be smart about them.
“Our batters aren’t scoring big regularly like India. We have to compete, but we can’t copy India since we have our limitations. We have our own rhythm. The way we make 300 is not the same as the way they do it. If we play smart, we can beat anyone,” opined by Karunaratne as he urged his unit to make a strong comeback in the ongoing cricket gala in England and Wales.
