What They Said About

'Next target - the World Cup'

Sri Lankan legends were among those to shower Dasun Shanaka's team with praise

Sri Lanka were not among the favourites at the start of the Asia Cup, and lost by a big margin on the opening night to Afghanistan. But they bounced back in style, winning five matches in a row to take home the trophy.
After a fantastic start in the final - they had reduced Sri Lanka to 58 for 5 - Pakistan faltered in the field as Bhanuka Rajapaksa led a splendid recovery act. Chasing 171, Pakistan never got any momentum going in their innings, and the rising asking rate resulted in a flurry of wickets.
