Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd ODI Highlights – 16 June 2022

Aaron Finch: “The fielding, we were very poor. Guys getting starts and not going on, similar to the last game. It was very poor [in the field]…we could have attacked the ball more. Chasing in these conditions is something we need to keep improving on. Tonight showed we were off the pace a bit.”

Dasun Shanaka: “The Australians bowled really well so were short a few runs…but had a good feeling my bowlers would defend the target. We need to come up with the right options [with the bat]. Chamika is a born warrior and whenever I throw the ball he delivers. I had a lot of trust in [Dunith Wellalage] as well. When I threw the ball he’s ready to take the chance.”

Chamika Karunaratne is the player of the match: “After a long time, I was waiting for this moment. I know I can do well and it’s come today and I’m so happy about it. Everything is planning…I’m always thinking out of the box. I’m always challenging batsmen. I always like to take a risk.”
