Dasun Shanaka Cites Lack Of Intent For Series Loss Against India


Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala): Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanka highlighted the lack of intent from his players for the loss in the third ODI as India registered the biggest win by runs in ODIs at the Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram.

The all-rounder congratulated the Indian team for completely dominating the visitors and securing a historic win. “Playing positive cricket is the key. If the boys showed intent, bowling will be different. While playing international cricket, we need to play with intent. I would like to congratulate the Indian team for playing this level of cricket,” expressed the Sri Lankan captain.

Shanaka termed the loss disappointing and stated that the game did not go according to the team. He also mentioned the areas his teammates need to improve upon.

“It’s disappointing. Not the game we would have wanted but it happens sometimes.

Bowlers and batters both need to learn. How to pick wickets on these pitches and how to score runs. No idea about that (on the updates about Bandara and Vandersay),” said the all-rounder.

A destructive powerplay spell from Mohammed Siraj continued Sri Lanka’s downfall for the third straight ODI, helping the hosts clinch a massive 317-run win in the final ODI on Sunday.

Virat Kohli won the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his match-winning ton and also the ‘Man of the Series’ for scoring 283 runs in the series, which included two centuries.
