Lanka captain Mathews praises his bowlers
Port-of-Spain: Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews rued the lost momentum towards the end of their innings during the tri-series final,even as he heaped praise on his bowlers for almost defending a paltry score.
It was a great game,the bowlers showed a lot of character to defend 200. Sanga and Thirimanne batted really well,but we lost momentum after that. Had we played till the end,we could have pushed it to 230-240 and that would have been enough.
