Impatient Sri Lanka fans voice displeasure

You have to prepare 24 months in advance.

Pointing towards the curious case of Ajinkya Rahane, Kohli said that the right-handed opener knows that he is behind Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in the pecking order but he remains India's third choice opener in limited overs format. "We're going to experiment and embrace that. You get frustrated. You can't fault anyone within that changing room". All the guys have bought into it.

Lauding India for its improvement in fitness standards, said, "We are talking about the good health of our nation and clearly in some time, we are going to have healthier people around, because it is about living a healthy lifestyle, being fit, being more active and what is going to happen after that is something that we can be proud of. You give them a little bit of time - you give them a little bit of love, a little bit of care, and build up that confidence, you'll see results quick".

"The last three months have been a great time for Dhawan and he's cashing in on his purple patch".

India's ploy to use pacer Jasprit Bumrah as the first change also failed as all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who was brought in for Bumrah, was smashed by the Sri Lankan batman.

Chasing a paltry 217, India did not make the best of starts as Rohit Sharma (4) was run out in the fifth over when he lost his bat and did not ground his feet behind the crease to beat Chamara Kapugedara's throw.

The fans blocked the team bus from leaving the stadium with the crowd having to be dispersed by the police, delaying the Sri Lanka team's departure by more than half an hour. "When we're getting new players every game, it gets very hard from a confidence point of view".

On being asked about the decision to include Axar ahead of Kuldeep, Kohli clarified by saying, "We thought Axar was a gun fielder and felt that one wrist spinner is enough". It was a brilliant wicket for batting.

# Dickwella's impressive runs' tally of 648 at an average of 46.28, including two centuries and four fifties, in 14 matches is the highest by a Sri Lankan player in ODIs this year.

Lower-order players Thisara Perera (0), Lakshan Sandakan (5) and Lasith Malinga (8) tried to make up for the middle-order collapse but failed and thus, after a ideal start, the Islanders were restricted to 216. "If you want to score 300 in an ODI, someone has to get a big score and that is what we are lacking in the last one or two years", said Tharanga. "We have to learn from the mistakes".
