Colombo: India won the first ODI against Sri Lanka by 7 wickets and the visiting team captured the second match by 3 wickets after a hard fight. It seemed that the Indian team would win the third ODI as well, but Sri Lanka came back in the last match and won by three wickets. India had set a target of 227 runs in the rain-affected match, which Sri Lanka achieved in 7 39 overs. The Indian team, which won the first two matches, gave five players – Rahul Chahar, Krishnappa Gautam, Sanju Samson, Navdeep Saini and Chetan Sakariya a chance to debut in the third ODI. Know what the Sri Lankan and India captain gave after the match?
‘I’m happy with the way we played’
After the third ODI, Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka said that congratulations to the Indian team for winning the series. The whole series was very good and I am really happy with the way we played. The bowlers showed maturity. This is what I expect from the youth. I hope they continue this in future tours as well. When you play international cricket for a long time, the players keep on improving and it becomes a habit to perform consistently. This is a big win for the fans. We have been waiting for this for a very long time and have won against India at home after a long time. I want to thank all our players and support staff. I enjoy captaining.
‘We got off to a good start but then…’
At the same time, after the defeat, Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan said that this match was not in our favor. We tried some new players. We got off to a good start but then we lost a lot of wickets in the middle overs. We scored 50 runs short in the end. I am glad that the players made their debuts, because everyone has been in quarantine for a long time. We had a chance to debut the players because we had won the series. I always analyze where I can improve and how strategies can be better. We were positive we could defend the target but knew the runs were short. The players gave a good fight and the ending was interesting. Looking forward to the T20 series.
