Colombo:

Former test batsman Aravinda de Silva says Sri Lankan cricketers must learn from Australia and fight until the last to win matches, even though they have superior talent.

A day after resigning as national chief selector, De Silva on Thursday said Sri Lankan players were probably emotional during last week's one-day World Cup final when they saw the match slip away to India.

Sri Lanka's captain, vice-captain and the selection panel have all resigned just days after losing the final.
