“Our batsmen tried to score 160-170 runs. To be honest, it was a 120-run wicket, mainly because of our bowlers. We played to our strengths – our bowling,” captain Hasaranga said at the post-match presentation ceremony. We played together, so we wanted to score and then defend it and we have three more games, we want to do better, especially with our batting talent, if our batting is good we can do well.”
