ABU DHABI:


Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya was in awe of Pakistan’s show on the field that saw them clinch the Test and One-Day International series against the opposition at a time when three of the country’s players were found guilty of spot-fixing last year.


While the trio met their fate, Pakistan players kept their focus on the field against Sri Lanka.

“Pakistan played brilliantly under the circumstances,” said Jayasuriya. “Their youngsters have been impressive in all departments and have shown good team spirit.”

Jayasuriya added that the verdicts should be a lesson for players all over the world. “It’s a lesson for everyone, not only for Pakistan.”
