“The way I played against India, I couldn’t capitalize on my scores. I had got good starts, but couldn’t get a big one. The coaches, support staff and the selectors spoke to me and they told me what they are expecting from me. I realised my job and did the job for the team on Friday,” Dickwella who spoke to journalists after Saturday’s third day’s play said.
“They want me to get more runs and be stable at the wicket and bat with the tail-enders. That’s the normal wicketkeeper’s job in a Test match,” he added. “I was disappointed not to complete a hundred. Unfortunate way to get out off an inside edge that bowled me.”
“I am going to play for my strengths. I am not going to do anything different. I will back my strengths. Have to be brave and take the calculated risks at the right time and play my normal game. That’s how I have been playing all these years,” noted Dickwella.
