After the match, the architects of the win caught up for a chat.

I did not have pressure: Pathirana

This is the best bowling figures I’ve seen on this wicket, tell me about your spell,” Shivam Dube asked Pathirana.

I did not have pressure from my seniors or the captain so I did the simple things. The coaching staff too came and told me to stick to basics. So I tried to execute my plans and it happened,” Pathirana said.

Pathirana also said he relishes bowling in pressure situations. “I like to bowl in pressure situations because it’s a challenge to me. Sometimes it’s good but sometimes it can be worse,” he said.

Secret behind Pathirana’s celebration

Pathirana opened up on his celebration too, claiming he tries to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo.

I try to do the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration. I try to close my eyes but can’t do that unfortunately so that is why it looks like an Undertaker celebration,” he said.
