The Sri Lanka bowlers have been outstanding throughout the tournament in the first ten overs. The back end of the game has been a concern for us said Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka after the England World Cup T20 match played in Sharjah Stadium on Monday. “ This is the first WC for most players, when they gain experience, they’ll do a better job”.

“We knew that dew will play a major factor in the second half. Losing wickets in regular intervals cost the game for us. Credit should go to Morgan and Buttler, They showed their experience. Actually Six months back, were not the same team. We were out of the competition, but these boys have come a long way in this tournament. I am happy with the way the boys have been fighting.said Skipper Shanaka.

Meanwhile England Captain Eoin Morgan, who has played more T20s than any other England player, described it as “one of Buttler’s best ever in an England shirt”.

“It was incredible to be at the other end and to watch the ebb and flow and then sheer domination at the end,” Morgan said.

“He is one of the best in the game and it is a privilege to play alongside him and have him in our team.”

Asked what makes Buttler so special, Morgan said: “It is a combination of the unbelievable skill level and the calm nature that he goes about it.

“He combines that with reading the game, where to score and when to score.”

He really is one of the best in the game, a privilege to play with and great to have in our team. I thought our all-round fielding performance was pretty good, given conditions and how wet things got. We’re just delighted with the win. Sri Lanka have pushed us further than we’ve been pushed so far in this tournament

They’ve boxed above their weight so far in the World Cup so they should be incredibly proud so far of what they’ve achieved but we’re delighted with four wins said skipper Morgan (Agencies)
