Sri Lanka Legends vs West Indies Legends: Who said what

Tharanga, Player of the Match: “Pitch was really good. We got a good start. Me and Dilshan had really good partnership. We bowled really well. Only thing we lacked was in the fielding.”

Dilshan: “Want to thank the organising committee and those behind the scenes. Hope to carry this form until the final. Good toss to win with the dew factor. WI have a quality spin attack and dew worked against them. Tharanga is experienced player. We both opened for SL. He batted really well. Best thing is he finished the game.”

Tino Best: “Wasn’t enough runs. 170-175 may have been better. Very good batting wicket. Playing such a quality team like SL, have to put more runs. Felt good, felt strong. Haven’t bowled in a year. Competitive juices get in.”
