Captain of the winning team Wanindu Hasaranga stated that they were “playing with confidence”, with Kamindu Mendis bagging the “Player of the Match” title for his 58 off 40 deliveries.

Meanwhile, Dambulla Aura Captain Dasun Shanaka, expressed his disappointment over the team’s performance, stating that the encounter was an “embarrassing” one, and that there have been mistakes in every game they’ve faced thus far.

“Nothing happens for us. Bowlers don’t bowl well, and then the batters don’t take responsibility. We all are established players and we need to take responsibility in the middle”, Shanaka said.
