Lasith Malinga pointed out : “Our batsmen gave us good totals and our bowlers also bowled well to try and bring us a win but unfortunately we dropped some vital catches. The main reason for it is playing under lights. Our players need to be exposed to playing more matches under lights because everyone cannot play T20 internationals,” “It is an area that we may have overlooked upto this stage. I need to talk to SLC and get them to organise to play more T20 matches at least 4-5 days a month under lights. Otherwise it is difficult for the youngsters to immediately come and perform under lights. It is not an excuse for losing the matches, but it is a factor. If we can continuously expose these young players to play under lights we can expect better performances from them,” External link

Lasith Malinga said : “We decided to bat first in the first two T20Is because we have a young side and we didn’t want to put them under pressure having to chase a big target. Until they become mentally strong we have to protect them and allow them to play their natural game. In that aspect I think the decision I took is correct,” “I believe that batting first won’t put the batsmen under pressure they can play freely and then the challenge for us is to stop the opposition from scoring those runs. That has been my plan and it has been successful to a point because we took the game to the last over. There is what you call scoreboard pressure, that is if you put runs on the board the team chasing comes under pressure. We maintained the pressure on the opposition but for our bad luck in the final over in a matter of 2 or 3 balls we made some mistakes and lost,” External link

I trained hard and he had the confidence in me to give me a match for his team, Galle CC.

If you are a bowler, you should give the coaches the option to pick you for the game, not the other way. At times people may assume that I’m off my head when I continuously bowl the same delivery, maybe for hours. But when you are a good bowler, you should master the art and become the bowler a team, a captain and a nation can depend on. I’m glad that I was able to become one of those exceptional bowlers.

Dimuth Karunaratne said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “More than the batsmen, I think we need to look at the bowlers, because we’ve lost Lasith aiya now. He was one of our main bowlers, and someone who put his hand up and got those wickets. We need to find bowlers who can get us wickets,” “We also need to find all-rounders, who are important overseas. We have to find those players who deliver in tough situations. Today, pretty much everyone had a bowl, and they came up with wickets. That’s what I expect when I make a bowling change - that whoever comes on will build pressure and get a wicket.

Dimuth Karunaratne said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “More than the batsmen, I think we need to look at the bowlers, because we’ve lost Lasith aiya now. He was one of our main bowlers, and someone who put his hand up and got those wickets. We need to find bowlers who can get us wickets,” “We also need to find all-rounders, who are important overseas. We have to find those players who deliver in tough situations. Today, pretty much everyone had a bowl, and they came up with wickets. That’s what I expect when I make a bowling change - that whoever comes on will build pressure and get a wicket. The batsmen also have to perform, because there are now players putting pressure on us,” External link
