PAK – 147 (20)
Sri Lanka won by 23 runs
Bhanuka Rajapaksa | MoM: Outside, things were not simple. Bowling well was Pakistan. We had a strategy when Wanindu entered the room. We aimed to remain upbeat throughout. But happily, we both gave it our all. I had to alter my strategy because Pakistanis were in charge Since this is a game of momentum, the last ball is six and the last. We set a goal of 170 because we wanted to spend some time in the crease. After the tenth over, Chris (Silverwood) came out to talk with us, and I told him that 140 was a decent score. However, by the time we departed, the target had drastically changed. Wanindu threatened to attack the bowl.
Wanindu Hasaranga | MoS: Bhanuka and I had a decent total in mind when I came to bat at 60/5, which was 150. I assured him that I would fulfill my obligations and make my injections. The ball swung throughout the opening few overs, but the wicket was excellent when I was batting. I adore bowling in the Indian subcontinent. In these circumstances, I aim to bowl at the stumps, which is why I am successful. I make an effort to bowl tight and dot balls. Our boys performed admirably throughout the competition, especially following our defeat by Afghanistan.
Losing captain: Babar Azam Congratulations to Sri Lanka for their excellent cricket performance. The first eight overs were won by us, but Rajapaska’s partnership was incredible. It is always pleasant to play in Dubai, and this was a genuine wicket. We had a strong start, but we lost 15 to 20 more runs and couldn’t finish strong. Many advantages for us to consider. There is less room for error in a final. Our batting couldn’t put it away, and our fielding wasn’t up to par. However, Rizwan, Naseem, and Nawaz stood out. There will be ups and downs, but it would be wonderful if we made fewer mistakes.
I want to express my gratitude to the fans for their tremendous support. I hope today we did them proud. I was thinking about the IPL 2021 game in which Chennai won by bat first. These young people are very familiar with the circumstances. Wanindu significantly contributed despite losing five wickets. Additionally, Chamika and DDS batted quite effectively. The pivotal ball was the final six. 160 always feels chasable, so 170 was the mental difference. We had confidence in Madushanka as children, and as captains, we were obligated to support him. Any squad anywhere in the globe is susceptible. [On the opening contest with Afghanistan] It took place for a valid purpose. After that game, we had serious conversations. Each and every person.
