Chittagong: Mar 27, 2014
Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal blamed dew for his bowlers’ plight against Alex Hales scoring his blistering hundred. “We started well thanks to Mahela [Jayawardene] and [Tillakaratne] Dilshan. It was a good total, but it was difficult with the dew for our bowlers.
We had two spinners, but they couldn’t grip the ball — especially Mendis,” he said.
Chandimal praised Hales and Eoin Morgan for their splendid batting effort.
“Alex batted really well, so did Morgan. We’ll have to pick up the pieces and get ready for the next game,” he signed off.
