Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan 3rd ODI Highlights – June 7, 2023

Hashmatullah Shahidi:

“Today was a bad day for our batters, but it happens in cricket. It was a good batting wicket, but we lost early wickets because of bad shot selection. We need to improve in our batting, we have a series with Bangladesh so we will work harder. Ibrahim has been doing very well in the past year, so I hope he continues. The positives were definitely Ibrahim and some of the bowlers as well.”

Dasun Shanaka:

“After going down 1-0 in the series it was very special to wrap it up today. Dimuth has been outstanding over the last few years, so he has a lot more to offer Sri Lanka Cricket. These couple of games we played as a group, and showed exactly what we could do. Especially Chameera and Kumara how they started today, especially how the wicket was. They showed a lot of character, and I hope they will carry this on to the qualifiers.”

Player of the Match and Player of the Series awards go to Dushmantha Chameera: “Feel happy to be back after surgery. I worked hard on my fitness and bowling. First match there was a little bit of pressure having played after 10 months, but I was okay after the first over and got into my rhythm.”
