Mathews: I thought it was not the most fluent innings. I had to work really hard against the number one team. But in the end runs matter. I was hitting the ball, but I did not capitalize after getting to fifties. I told myself to carry on after getting fifty today. As a batsman you are always under pressure and I like those challenges. Yes it did cross my mind and thanks to the production team for playing it on the giant screen. (getting run-out on 99 on his first Indian tour). I have played longer cricket and it didn’t bother me. Few more wickets in hand would have been ideal. Chandimal was brilliant today and a captain’s knock from him. Little bit disappointed but we can still fight. It is a good wicket, taking a bit of turn and still good for batting. It will take more spin on the fourth and fifth day.
