Sri Lanka Test captain Dinesh Chandimal, lauded his batsmen for the way they executed the plans and saved the third and final Test in Delhi yesterday.
Sri Lanka started the day on 31 for 3 and soon lost Angelo Mathews but defiant knocks from Dhananjaya de Silva, Chandimal, Roshen Silva and Niroshan Dickwella meant the hosts failed to force a win and had to settle for a 1-0 series win.
Chandimal felt the mental toughness of the players came to the fore after they had their backs to the wall by the end of the fourth day.
He said they got so many youngsters for this series and they have a really good attitude, and that's what he is looking at from this team. He concluded that attitude is good and discipline is good and he thinks that he can move forward with this team.
