In the bowling for Sri Lanka, Experience player Lasith Malinga bowled amazing bowling. He took four wickets and conceded just 43 runs. Lasith Malinga won the player of the match award.
After winning the player of the match award, Lasith Malinga Said,
“(On the dropped catch of Stokes) we know how good a player he is, we’ve seen it in T20 cricket and in the IPL. But we kept sticking to our plans, ensured that he played away dots and put pressure on him. It paid off. We planned to stick to line and length on this pitch with the slower ones and bouncers. We have the confidence to influence matches and have faith in ourselves.”
Sri Lanka will face South Africa in their next game of world cup 2019 on June 28. They have played six matches so far in the world cup 2019 and won two matches out of them. Sri Lanka is at the 5th position in the points table with 6 points.
