Delhi Test: Dinesh Chandimal hails Sri Lanka's 'good attitude' after draw

Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal yesterday said youngsters with "good attitude" are always able to produce results after his team eked out a draw against India in the third Test. Sri Lanka had to battle health issues due to severe Delhi pollution and Chandimal attributed their fightback to the gutsy nature of youngsters like Dhananjaya de Silva, Roshen Silva and Niroshan Dickwella. "We have got so many youngsters for this series and they have really got a good attitude. And if that is there the best result are bound to come," Chandimal said. "If you have players with bad attitude, you won't get good results. Good attitude, good discipline can take this team forward."
