Dhaka pitch ‘a nightmare’ for batsmen-Chandimal


Sri Lanka Test skipper Dinesh Chandimal termed the Dhaka pitch ‘a nightmare’ for the batsmen and lauded his team-mates for coming out on top.

Chandimal said the first game was a nightmare for the bowlers and termed the second a nightmare for the batters. He said the team executed gameplans really well out in the middle.

The first Test in Chittagong was played on a surface that assisted the batsmen far too much and was rated as ‘below average’ by the ICC.

A total of 1533 runs were scored then and only 24 wickets fell.

Two half-centuries from Roshen Silva and eight wickets for the match on debut by Akila Dananjaya headlined Sri Lanka’s comprehensive 215-run victory over Bangladesh in the second and final Test in Dhaka.

Chandimal said since the second Test was the series decider, he had expected a result-oriented pitch anyway.
