Sri Lanka, after a crushing 3-0 hammering in the Test series, will look for a quick turn-around of fortunes when the five-match ODI series against India begins today in Dambulla. The visitors have been in fine knick in the limited-overs format with series victories over England, New Zealand, West Indies and Zimbabwe in the a year ago and a half. They will play a five-match ODI series, followed by a one-off T20. In the next over, Kohli ran out Chamara Kapugedara (1) with a straight hit from extra cover.
Sri Lanka beat India when the two met at the Champions Trophy in June. Innings after innings, match after match, Dhawan is blasting Lankan bowlers all around the park and scoring big runs for his team. You try things and lose, and people will say that it shouldn't have been done. Chief selector M.S.K. Prasad clearly outlined this, stressing on the aspect of fitness as Team India begins its preparations for the 2019 ODI World Cup. "Especially in limited overs format initially when I came in, I sort of used to play too many shots at once and now I have realised that it can not be going out and just slogging every time", he reasoned. The Kohli-led side also made it to the finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy.
Having been put in to bat first, Sri Lanka got off to strong start, but after losing Niroshan Dickwella in the 25th over, wickets started to tumble for the hosts. Sri Lanka were crushed by nine wickets after managing just 216. "Everyone is ready to take up those challenges and I think that is the most exciting part".
Sri Lanka chased down India's 322 quite comfortably in the end, winning the match by seven wickets after fine performances from Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka.
He also said that Sri Lanka is likely to go with two frontline seamers with Mathews and Perera to support. Angelo (Mathews) and Thisara (Perera) can bowl.
