Batting stalwart Kumar Sangakkara has come out and applauded Bangladesh’s big win over Sri Lanka in Colombo, which also happened to be their 100th game in white jersey saying this one is possibly their best among all they have achieved in Tests.
Having to win only eight games prior to this after making their Test debut in 2000, Bangladesh played an inspiring brand of cricket to register a four-wicket win in the second match while chasing 191 on the fifth-day track. Also, the win is significant in the manner, that it first came outside their home condition and secondary it’s their first win against Sri Lanka in Tests.
Sangakkara, heaped praise on them saying they showed spirit to achieve and accomplished his successfully. He though backed his own team adding Sri Lanka is a better team than this and they have proved it in past.
“It is the greatest win for Bangladesh. They exhibited extra ordinary bravery and gave hundred percent in the field. I am sure Sri Lanka will also come back soon. It was a good Test match indeed.”
Bangladesh with the win levelled the two-match series one-all and now will be competing in three ODIs and two T20Is respectively, starting on March 25 in Dambulla.
