Sri Lanka finished with just three wins in nine games at the World Cup as two of their encounters were washed out due to relentless rain. With a fragile batting order bearing the brunt of the criticism, Sri Lanka’s disorganized squad has often been criticized for the selectors making wrong decisions.
Addressing these genuine concerns, Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne claimed that while he was partly satisfied with his country’s World Cup campaign since they achieved a victory over eventual champions England, he was focused on rebuilding for a settled team in the future.
“I think if you take World Cup, we did fairly good. In patches we did really well and sometimes we didn’t do very well. We need to groom some youngsters for the next World Cup. We have plenty of time but we need to groom one by one. And those are the key areas I’m looking forward to,” Karunaratne emphasized.
