Dasun Shanaka, Sri Lankan captain: We started really well and finished well, but we didn't get going in the middle overs. 
I think we could have missed 15-20 runs. Fast bowlers didn't prepare well, they are coming after injuries. 
That's the reason behind getting them injured. It was tough with the new ball due to the spongy bounce. Even Finch struggled against the new ball. They played really well in the latter part.

Aaron Finch: Very happy. My innings was unusual, poor. I couldn't hit the ball. 
The way we approached with the bat was fine. It was seaming a long way there, if we could get through that, it was important 
to set-up the back end of the innings. Would have been kicked on if I had kicked on earlier. All in all, pretty clinical. They bowled the hard length, it was tough. Such a big ground, hard to stand and deliver. Nice to get the two points. (Stoinis) It was a pretty special innings. To come out with that intent is the main thing.

Player of the Match goes to Marcus Stoinis. 

Marcus Stoinis: "Ronny said to have a look at the quicks because it was doing a bit and if I felt comfortable then to have a go at 
the spinners. Once I got in, the plan was just to keep going. To be honest I was really nervous today being at home in Perth with lots of family and friends here b
ut really happy we put on a bit of a clinic today. Mentally I was nice and fresh having some time off with this side strain, but so far so good. I felt good. We played here the other day against England and it was a beautiful wicket. This did look like it was doing a little bit more, especially against the new ball. It's a beautiful ground, probably the best ground in Australia if not the world. We've wrapped this game up and look forward to playing England at the MCG. They're obviously a very good team so we'll do our homework again, rest up, get on our flight tomorrow and then go from there."
