Chandimal proud of team’s fighting spirit
Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal praised his team’s fighting spirit that resulted in a series whitewash over Pakistan.
Barely two months ago Sri Lanka were routed 3-0 at home by India. Chandimal said since that series, players and management switched gears on and off the field.
“We are over the moon,” said Chandimal who won his first series as full-time captain. “Those were tough times for everyone but we learned a lot of things from that India series as a team and as individuals. Everyone put in their heart and soul during practice, so when they came into the match they were prepared.”
Chandimal praised Dilruwan Perera who finished with 5-98. “Dilruwan was struggling in the Indian series. Before we came here we spoke to him and gave him confidence.”
