Lasith Malinga:


I was really lucky to captain in the last three games. Today, we thought it was Sanga and Mahela’s farewell match.. the boys thought we needed to do it for them. Last few overs we bowled really well. Me, Kula and Sachithra. Mahela and Sanga are world-class bowlers and it was a good opportunity for us to be able to play with them. They are still playing Tests and ODIs and the younger players need to pick all that they can from the two
