Sri Lanka vs Netherlands T20 World Cup Highlights – 20 Oct 2022

Scott Edwards: “I think we bowled pretty well in the powerplay. A little bit unlucky I think that there were a lot of balls that didn’t quite go to hand. Without getting those wickets up top we knew they were going to be dangerous through the middle and back end. Hopefully, the UAE can help us get through, but it was in our hands, and just disappointed we weren’t quite there tonight.”

Dasun Shanaka: “We knew that when we came to the World Cup we would be the favorites in this group. Unfortunately, we missed out in the first game, but we regrouped and we came back strong. Credit to all the boys. [Thoughts at the halfway stage?] I thought the wicket wasn’t easy to bat on, it was a bit two-faced. So I thought in the first 10 overs we were able to control the scoring rate really well.”

Player of the Match is unsurprisingly Kusal Mendis: “Early on the wicket was a little bit slow, so the plan was to take singles and hit the loose balls. Then after 10 overs, we could go for more runs. Asalanka started a little slow, but after 15 balls he knew the wicket better; him hitting the three boundaries after that made it easy for me.”
