Sri Lanka bowlers rattles Indian batting line in opening one day 2017
o that’s all that we have for the moment. Not a happy day for India. They will have to, as Shakira famously sang, pick themselves up, dust themselves up and be back on the saddle. But that won’t be one bit easy.This defeat means that India would not be able to overtake South Africa at the top of the ODI rankings, even if they win the series.Next stop will be Mohali in three days’ time and it will be an 11.30 start there too. Catch you then. Till then, good bye.
Thisara Perera: 200 percent credit to bowlers. They were disciplined, bowled the right lengths and areas. They did everything (right) for the team. It was an unplayable wicket. We did not expect this. Suranga Lakmal is a good fast bowler, he is doing a god job in ODIs also. Upul (Tharanga) gave us a good start. He is one of our best openers.
