Dasun Shanaka (SL): I should thank BCCI, under these conditions they agreed to play. Special thanks to Rahul Dravid and Shikhar Dhawan. This is the best we had in the last few years. I had the (bowling) options and used them. Not only myself, all the boys worked really hard. They were keen to win and they want to be world-class. The way Chameera started, Wanindu bowled, how calm DDS was, Karunaratne is a gem to SL cricket. All the boys did the right job. They handled the situation well and used their brains well. I am lucky to lead this team. When a low score is set, it's good if you get a more positive start. But they are young and learning, they'll be better in the future.
Shikhar Dhawan (IND): It was a difficult situation for us. As a team we decided to stay and play these games. Really proud of the boys as well. They showed great character in the last two games. Their attitude was tremendous. We wanted to win as well, in every game you learn. It was an off-day four our batting unit. We lost too many wickets, SL bowled well. When you lose early wickets, you get a lot of pressure, glad that we got to the 80s, that's all we managed today. Both teams played in great spirit. It's beautiful that we were competitive in the field and respect was there. The Sri Lankan boys wanted to know what's my process, I was just sharing my experience. I hope they enjoyed listening to it. And, congratulations to the Sri Lankan team.
Wanindu Hasaranga (Player of the Match and Player of the Series) : Wicket was slow, our spinners bowled really well. When I bowl, I always try to bowl dot balls, that's why I pick wickets. Dasun was brilliant in the field. I am really happy because our boys did very well throughout the series.
Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets and won the series with 2-1
