In the 10th match of the ongoing Lanka Premier League, Colombo Strikers and Dambulla Sixers locked horns.

While praising Perera, Glenn Phillips said, “Today’s wicket was rather good. Angelo Perera did a fantastic job of giving us a flying start. But I also want to say that even though we ultimately lost, Matheesha was excellent and the way he bowled in the final over helped us out.”

Lauding Pathirana:

In the last match, Matheesha Pathirana was wicketless. While bowling in the second innings, he conceded 49 runs in 3.5 overs with an economy rate of 12.78. Even after this performance, Glenn Phillips praised his talent. He said, “I thought Matheesha was outstanding. It is of course a game of small matches and his bowling performance under duress was absolutely superb. Three knocks are all that matters in a bounce and Matheesha’s over relied heavily on it.”

Pathirana’s Strategy for Future Matches:

Facing defeat was a setback for them but young bowler Matheesha Pathirana is confident for the upcoming matches. While revealing his strategy, Pathirana said, “My plan is bowling dot balls as my team also supported the same in the over. I will try and employ it even better in the coming days.”

In the last match, he conceded 18 runs in the last over. While talking about the pressured situation, he said, “To be honest I am not giving it too much thought, I am just trying to carry out the strategy. Should it succeed, I will have command over the game if not my bowling will suffer.”
