How 'superman' MS Dhoni helped India win thriller over Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, once were on a rampage courtesy Akila Dananjaya, who rocked India's famed batting line-up with his maiden 6-for.

"We rather got together as a team and for us only victories mattered and not where we stand personally". Mathews had a chance to make a big contribution but the former captain fell playing a sweep shot to Axar Patel after getting 20. "I don't know what the time frames are but all I know is that if we keep doing what we are doing at the moment, you'll see results pretty soon". "Unusual game but good that we came through", a relieved Kohli said at the post-match press conference. They continue to support us. "We've got to take that on the chin as staff, as players, and that's the reality of sport".

"Yes, we didn't play our best cricket today".

"It was a great challenge for them to test themselves against the number one team". After a comprehensive win in the first ODI, Virat Kohli and his troops are down in the dumps. He was also playing his 300th global game - "I didn't know that". "As a team I have faith in the players that for the second ODI they will come up with a much better performance".

As India were cruising at a brisk pace in the beginning of their run chase, Kohli made changes in the batting order with himself coming down to fifth slot from his usual one-down spot. Lankan coach Nic Pothas has openly questioned the decision to leave out Chandimal.

Niroshan Dickwella was the only Sri Lankan batsman to score a half-century in the first ODI loss.

India's hegemonic policy at the heart of Doklam stand-off
Both Bhutan and India maintain that the junction between the three nations is located at a mountain pass called Batang La. There are not many signs that India is seeking peace.

Lanka can still seal automatic qualification for the 2019 ODI World Cup if they win two matches in this series. "As a team we go to each match to win".

Welcome to the fearless new order of Indian limited-overs cricket.

This series too has all the makings of another one-sided contest and is not making for a good spectacle for the home fans, who clearly let their displeasure known during the first One Day International.

Pallekele: India skipper Virat Kohli said here Wednesday that the string of limited overs matches will help his predecessor MS Dhoni find form and momentum. After all, if India are coasting along after a strong start, at perhaps 250 for 3 with 15 overs to go, Hardik Pandya would be the natural fit to go out and shift things up a gear or four.

"It's obviously very frustrating", Pothas said after the match.
