Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne is really pleased with Angelo Mathews

Mathews came to the after-match press conference with a happy face and answered all the question that was asked to him. It is notable to mention that he hadn’t bowled a single ball in an ODI for one and a half years and hadn’t even bowled in the nets all-tournament for Sri Lanka. When talking about his bowling Mathews said it was quite fortunate to get Nicholas Pooran first ball before he slapped him for a few sixes. He is glad that he could get him soon enough.

Dimuth Karunaratne said to the press that Pooran was playing really well. They had to somehow dismiss him before he could achieve the victory. On that time Mathews put his hand up and said that he’ll bowl the overs. He did really a fantastic job and that’s what he expected as a captain. He also added that this win for them brought a lot of confidence. Players stood up at vital times as they should.

On the other hand West Indies captain, Jason Holder said to the press conference that it is definitely disappointing to come so close on a number of occasions and not get over the line. This world cup 2019 has been a case of nearly but not quite for them. He is proud though that his team has shown some fight throughout the tournament and about the certain individuals of his team who had definitely put their hands up and put their harts on the line.
