In the post-match presentation Lasith Malinga Said, “In the last two games, we didn’t get through. So we wanted to win this game for all the people who’ve come here. All the players are really happy with what we did in this match. The secret to my bowling is not to complicate things much. Yorker was my best ball; I only try my best to bowl the right line and right length. Really happy that we won the match, I am a wicket-taking bowler when I play for Sri Lanka.”

“Captaining the side and leading the bowling is a bit of pressure. I always want to give all my experience to the youngsters before the World Cup. I give them the opportunities and support them big time. I would like to thank the New Zealand board and the players for coming here because we have had a tough time in the last few months. In the future also we want to do our best for the Sri Lankan fans and the supporters.”
