Sri Lanka Test Skipper Dinesh Chandimal says the team is over the moon following the Test series win against Pakistan.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony the Skipper noted all credit must be given to the players and management.

Meanwhile opening batsman Dimuth Karunaratne who’s brilliant knock of 196 set the tone for Sri Lanka in the team’s first innings said the members of the team were hungry for a win post the teams dismal performance against India.

Dimuth Karunaratne was awarded the man of the match and the man of the series accolades.

Sri Lanka registered a historic win by 68 runs against Pakistan in the second Test match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium this evening.

With this victory, the Lankan side won the Test series by a margin of 2-0 and became the first team to win a Test series in the UAE against Pakistan.
