“The selectors need to identify the batsmen they are going to back. Once they do that, they need to stick with them at any cost. Batsmen like Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva are young and you have to let them settle down and once they are exposed to these harsher realities they will be better off.” – Sri Lanka legend Aravinda de Silva, who is also head of their Cricket Committee.
“We don’t want to take anything for granted. We’ve definitely been on the other side of the coin. A year back, we were being criticised for the type of cricket we were playing. It’s good to be able to turn it around now and capitalise on some good form as a team.” – JP Duminy.
