July 30th, 2009 Posted in Match Highlights, One Day Match, Pakistan, Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka 232 for 9 (Mathews 43, Murali 32, Aamer 3-45) beat Pakistan 196 (Gul 33, Thushara 3-29, Kulasekara 2-30, Murali 2-46) by 36 runs

Younis Khan says the problem is that they are unable to forge partnerships in the top order. He also wants better fielding from his side. He praises Mohammad Aamer for his tight bowling on debut.

Sangakkara: “We let it get away a bit at the end, perhaps we got a bit complacent.” He says the win is a result of a team performance, with many players chipping in. He ends by saying:” I’m proud to have such depth of talent and ability in the dressing room.”

Murali is the Man of the Match. “I’m taking my batting a bit more seriously. As far as bowling goes, with Mendis out, there was more pressure on me, and I’m glad I could justify my place in the side.”
