Australian captain Megh Lenning said after winning the match - it is nice to win in such circumstances. When I went there, the score was 10-3. We needed a partnership. We were lucky that we had to score 120 runs. Had the goal been increased, it would have been difficult.
At the same time, Sri Lankan captain Chamari Attapattu said - I continued to play my natural game. I was out in the 12th over while I should have played three more overs. But the good thing is that we struggled in the last over against a strong team like Australia. We will return.
