SL vs IND Virat Kohli ready to help Sri Lanka in transition

Chasing 239, India were struggling at 99/4 in the 24th over when the skipper walked out to bat in a league match of the CB Series. Here it was the case of the wicket being a little challenging.

"He's bowled really well", Kohli said at a post-match presentation ceremony on Sunday night. "We were trying to extract that and use it to our advantage". "It is up to us to come up with something new to counter him", he added. He said you take on extra pressure when you think that you are playing for India which won't help you to express yourself.

"We've lost many bowlers (to injuries)".

With Pandya and Bhuwaneshwar's surprising scores in the first, and Rohit Sharma-MS Dhoni's splendid partnership in the second one, there is everything impressive that can't be missed at any cost. We wanted to create a steady partnership and take the game until the end. When a team is losing, even if they get close to a win, they can't go beyond that hurdle.

India won the third ODI against Sri Lanka by six wickets and will head to Colombo to play the 4th ODI of the series on Thursday, August 31.

The first Test between Bangladesh and Australia in Mirpur saw Shakib Al Hasan scoring 84 runs and claiming a five wicket haul as well that put the visitors in some trouble in the spin friendly track.

He was well supported by Dhoni on the other side and together, they guided team India home.

After the game, Bumrah said that if a fast bowler has to succeed at the global level then he must learn new things and improve his game constantly. "He's being treated. Only five or six guys are training tonight, so anyway we gave him a break. It's a good feeling, whenever you're able to contribute to the team's success".

"Yeah it is always good to get some time off, especially spending so much time on the field, it is important to spend time off the field as well", he said. They can play experimental matches on fourth and fifth.

"With technology coming into the game in a big way people have started analysing your game". The death-over specialist kept on picking wickets in the end to restrict Sri Lanka to small total of 217-9 from 50 overs.

India have retained their winning combination from the last two ODIs while Sri Lanka have brought in Lahiru Thirimanne and Dinesh Chandimal in place of injured Gunathilaka and suspended Tharanga.

Ground staff were seen clearing the bottles, but more continued to be flung, thereby forcing the Sri Lanka fielders to move to the centre of the field in order to avoid being hit.
