Coach Logie was positive at the performance of the team and looked forward to the upcoming UAE series:

"The Auty Cup performances has given the players some confidence going into their I Cup game against the UAE. We are beginning to see some level of consistency from Ravindu which augurs well for the future. Two hundreds over the last few days from Damodar and Ravindu has excited everyone, and expectation that others can do the same has started making the rounds.

We look forward to the challenge that UAE brings with a hightened sense of anticipation and focus that we can get a favourable result."
