This is what we look for in a leader: Dasun Shanaka and Chopra

Chopra told CricTracker on the BatBricks7 presents Run Ki Runneeti show, ” “The way skipper Dasun Shanaka batted when wickets were falling and he looked to control the game was memorable for me. You expect the same thing from a leader and a middle-order batter.”

Shanaka was the standout performer for his team in a game that came down to the wire for me “Nikkhil elaborated.
