INDIAN skipper Virat Kohli has drawn level with Australian great Ricky Ponting with the pair now second on the list of One-Day International century makers on 30. "We've been playing some good cricket". We were outplayed in the series.
Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan will miss the remaining two matches of India's limited overs series in Sri Lanka to fly home to tend to his sick mother, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has said. Kohli dazzled with the bat with an unbeaten 110, his 30 ton in ODIs.
Fellow medium-pacer Jasprit Bumrah also performed well with figures of 2/45. We have worked on it.
For that though, Sri Lanka will need to raise its game significantly, because India is not going to be complacent about this game.
By this stage, this seems more like a benefit function for India's cricketers than a competitive series.
2 - This was the India captain's 8th ODI century against Sri Lanka, the most by any batsman against Sri Lanka (on par with Sachin Tendulkar's 8 tons). Almost half the number of runs he has scored in his ODI career have come in successful run chases, with 17 of his 30 ODI centuries helping him in that endeavour. This match is struggling for consistency alongside the stability with players coming in and out. The Indian skipper first put on 99 runs for the third wicket with Manish Pandey (36, 53b, 2×4) to steady the ship and then another 109 for the fourth with Kedar Jadhav (63, 73b, 7×4) to take the visitors to the doorsteps of victory.
For Rohit Sharma, who had a bad ODI record in Sri Lanka before the start of the series, it was an interesting series. However, Lahiru Thirimane (67) and Angelo Mathews (55) steadied the innings and they took the hosts on course of a big first-inning score.
The 28-year-old further insisted that he only focuses on contributing to the team and doesn't play for records.
Man of the Series in India's last ODI assignment (against West Indies), Ajinkya Rahane spent the best of the series on the bench and only got his opportunity in the final match of the series with Dhawan unavailable for selection. Kusal Mendis will miss this game. He, now, ranks fourth and trails Australia's Adam Gilchrist (417), South Africa's Mark Boucher (402), Sri Lanka's Sangakkara (383).
