On its tour of Sri Lanka thus far, Australia has enjoyed a lot of support from the crowd. David Warner acknowledged his amazement at the level of support the visitors had received during the ODI series between the two teams.
On Friday, during the fifth and final ODI at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lankan cricket supporters expressed their appreciation to the visiting Australian team.
When the island nation was suffering from an extraordinary economic upheaval, Australia arrived there for the bilateral series. The Australian tour of Sri Lanka not only helped the Lankans make some money but also improved the nation’s spirit overall through sport.
David Warner referred to the scenes from the R Premadasa Stadium where the Australians were met with unrelenting support from the fans as “amazing.”
