Sri Lanka rattled Netherlands in the final match of the preliminary round after beating them by 8 wickets. The Netherlands side was bundled out for 44 and the Lankan lions chased down the target in the 8th overs.
WHO SAID WHAT?
Shanaka | SL captain: Bowlers executing really well. I didn’t bowl in these qualifiers (sic), so we have six bowlers. We know the advantages and disadvantages (in these conditions) so going forward it’s a big plus for us.
Seelaar | Netherlands captain: Pretty simple – SL outplayed us. Outplayed this whole group. Just two steps ahead. Have got a SA series in November. Qualifier in NZ in March. Got to go to the drawing board. They came out with some good heat, some good aggression, and some team frustration came out.
