Sri Lanka vs India, 2nd ODI – Live Cricket India won by 3 wkts (DLS method)

SL 236/8 (50.0 Ovs)
IND 231/7 (44.2 Ovs)

Kohli – captain, India: “It was quite an exciting game of cricket. It gave us a tough test out there but was good to come through. Was good to see two 100-run stands in a 230 run chase and then a collapse. Strange game but good that we came through. You want to give the other guys in the team a go too (on the batting reshuffle). We got out to good deliveries. Akila bowled an outstanding spell. Even batting at No.3, I would have still gotten out to that delivery. It’s difficult when you haven’t seen the guy but now we will be more careful. Credit to him; he capitalized on the hesitation because we were not reading him too well. He attacked the stumps.”

Tharanga – captain, SL: “Disappointed. We came very close and couldn’t finish it. Milind and Kapu gave us a good finish. Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar played well. Dananjaya bowled very well. We had a few overs to go, that’s why we kept him for the last few overs. Fielding and bowling has improved. Dananjaya and Milinda were brilliant.”

Dananjaya – Player of the Match (6 for 54): I use my variations and kept using it in the first eight overs. I had my wedding yesterday, and came back to the hotel in Kandy at 10pm. (Translated from Sinhalese)
