|I wanted to finish it on a high note - Aravinda
Clementine reporting from St. Georges Park, Port Elizabeth
Before the tournament began in a lengthy interview with "The Island" Aravinda said that he would like to take the team through to the finals of the competition and hes just one step away from doing that, "I am quite glad that we got to the semis. Hopefully, well go through and if that happens basically I would have achieved everything that I
wanted in my career," he said reflecting back at his career, which spanned almost two decades.
Has he achieved all what he wanted? "To a large extent yes. I think there could have been a lot more that I would have really loved to achieve. But I cant be unrealistic and say that I have not achieved all I wanted. Weve won a World Cup and what else do you want," he said.
Hes been in superb form as well. De Silva is the third highest run scorer in the competition for Sri Lanka and has batted with the grace hes always done, throughout the competition. Hes also been handy with his experience, speaking to the younger players quite often and motivating them. He was seen working with Mahela Jayawardene.
