Commentary

On that note, we take your leave. Good night and good luck

Dilshan, MoM "I am really enjoying my batting at the moment. First 10 overs, I try to attack, then settle down to play longer, unfortunately I got out today. I am really happy with the bowling, I enjoy bowling."

Sanga "You never know what to expect of the Dambulla wicket, but the way Dilshan batted, there is no pressure on you. Tharanga supported him well, and Mahela got us the momentum back. Great to have this feel in the dressing room, especially from Zimbabwe, the way they were focussed on winning, it has really rubbed onto us."

Shakib "We didn't start ball, especially with the new ball. Dilshan played some magnificent shots, and took away the game from us. It is frustrating, we have played good cricket for the last 12 months, but suddenly in the last four games we haven't played to our potential. The wicket was good, there was no reason for not batting well."

So not much from outside Tamim again, although Junaid impressed. Sri Lanka efficient. They go to top of table with nine points. Dilshan's match it was, with that quick fifty and three wickets. Do stay back for post-match quotes
