Player of the match
Wanindu Hasaranga | B-Love Kandy
We all know Jaffna have been champions in the last three years. Our boys played really good cricket. We haven’t played Dushmantha today because he was injured, Udana also got injured. Finished Mujeeb’s 4 overs before 10 overs but I still believed in myself.
I do my basic things, try to bowl on stumps. Try to bowl good line and length and dot balls. The wrong-un is my weapon, I get lot of wickets from it. So I back my strengths. I think Udana is also out for this tournament. Don’t know about Pradeep.
We played lot of back-to-back games. We can’t play like that, hopefully next time they take some time and schedule it longer.
