SL 207-all out (42.4 Ovs) - Sri Lanka vs India, 4th ODI

Kohli, Man of the Match: It was one of the good games for us. We spoke about not getting complacent at any stage and today was a clinical performance. Today was about doing things the way we wanted to do and I think it is a very satisfying day. We wanted to bat first because we didn’t get the chance to bat first in the first three games and the way the ball came onto the bat initially proved that the wicket was amazing to bat on. It was a good toss to win and it was very difficult for the opposition to maintain that required run rate throughout. We have given opportunities to three new guys and definitely they are going to get another opportunity. The batting order and everything can be flexible according to the situation of the game. We will experiment here and there a little bit, once the guys settle into their role in any given situation and given condition.

Malinga: 300 wickets is special. But, it is just a number. I feel these last few days, I’m not doing well for the team. Still lost the game and that doesn’t feel good. We are still to get 250 in the series, I think the youngsters are too excited and couldn’t perform well to their potential. Hopefully they will comeback strong and perform well in the coming games.
