Solomon Mire, Zimbabwe’s hero in their maiden international win on Sri Lankan soil has said that the team’s victory on Friday has given new hope for the fans of his country.
“It was a special knock and very satisfying considering it was such a huge win for us. We have beaten Sri Lanka here for the first time so I am happy that I contributed,” Mire told journalists.
“It’s such a huge thing for Zimbabwe cricket to be able to win against a top ranked team like Sri Lanka because it just gives hope for the fans and the people who are following the team. Hopefully we will get more support from our people back home and all round the world as well,” Mire said.
“Coming into this series, we were sort of preparing to have those options for us to use because we were thinking the wickets might be a bit challenging. So we needed those options. The fact that it worked today is something that we would try and continue utilizing,” Mire explained.
