No one drops catches on purpose: Carlos Brathwaite
After defeating Galle Gladiators, the skipper of Kandy Falcons Wanindu Hasanranga looked happy and shared a few words in the post-match presentation. "The foreign players are doing a good job. We have an experienced side and that's why we are doing a fine job.
We have good bench strength as well. We are going with a balanced side. We are going to our home (Kandy), we'll get good support from our fans," Wanindu Hasaranga was quoted saying as same as in Cricbuzz.
Carlos Brathwaite was named Player of the Match for his fabulous spell with the ball and the all-rounder shared a few words in the post-match presentation saying, "Pitch was good for seam bowling and I kept it simple.
Tried to bring the edge into play. Happy with opening the bowling. Fletcher has been apologising, no one drops catches on purpose. LPL has been amazing, good vibes so far."
