Dubai: Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal vowed his team would come back hard at Pakistan in the second Twenty20 international in Dubai on Friday to keep their world number one ranking intact.
Pakistan edged out Sri Lanka by three wickets in a thrilling last-over finish in the first match on Wednesday. If Pakistan, currently fourth, win on Friday they will displace Sri Lanka as number one team in the Twenty20 rankings.
But Chandimal said his team was working hard to bounce back. "Pakistan have played some good cricket in South Africa recently and we never underestimated them, especially in limited over cricket, so we will put our heart and soul and come back strongly," he said.
