New Delhi: Shikhar Dhawan, who has already won the ODI series as captain, looked very happy during the post match presentation. He said that I thought today's wicket was much better and we restricted them to good scores. When their batsmen were in, the spinners came back and the bowlers adjusted their line and length. We did not start well and it is a good lesson for the youth that every day is not the same. They will understand how to deal with these situations and come up with a new strategy.
Dhawan said that the way Manish Pandey and Suryakumar were batting, we thought that they would win us matches. It takes good luck to survive the way Pandey got out. The way Krunal fought in the middle was amazing. Everyone showed character. We knew that Chahar worked hard on his batting in the nets. His mental presence and calculation against the leg-spinner was amazing. Bhuvi and his both calculated it very well.
Dhawan said – I thought the way Sri Lanka planned their innings both with their batting and bowling was amazing. The way he batted and fielded was worth watching. He worked really hard, but I am happy that we got the win. Every game is a lesson to be learned and we look forward to analyze and improve. We want to do well all the time.
