"We have to put up a good total that's the main thing" Taskin Ahmed said
The Tigers overhauled Sri Lanka's 6-214 with five wickets and two balls to spare to clinch their first win of the Nidahas Trophy, a tri-series competition also involving India being held in Colombo.
Sri Lanka went into the fourth match of the Nidahas Trophy one batsman short, while India strengthened their line-up and this made the difference.
India has won the toss and ask SL to bat first.
"Well, it was nothing special". Mushfiqur Rahim ruined the night for them and such was the pressure he put by smashing four sixes and five fours on Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal that they had to slow down the over rate to get right the calculations and field placements. But India's bowlers turned it around wonderfully well to concede only 58 in the last nine. To restrict a batting unit like that was a great effort from the bowlers. But this side has shown that it has the strength to go out and deliver and will be eager to continue their good work like they did against Bangladesh.
Spinner Akila Dananjay denied India a strong start, dismissing both openers, Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, cheaply. Now as you saw in this game, Manish and DK batted extremely well. "I have told one thing before: I love challenges. It was a complete team effort", Rohit analysed.
However, Pandey and Karthik with a match-winning partnership ensured the visitors get close to the qualification. His painful stay at the crease came to an end in the 11th over when he was castled by Vijay Shankar.
"We had discussed about our plans against Sri Lankan bowlers".
The match was reduced to 19 overs a side after rain delayed start of the game at the R. Premadasa stadium.
The win propelled India into contention for a place in the final of the tournament that has Bangladesh as the third team.
The 26-year-old added that he dreamt of playing for India but there was not added pressure.
Mendis though got little support from the other batsmen as the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The at-the-moment spin spearhead has had two decent outings this time around, and he will be intent on stamping his wrist-spinning dominance on Sri Lanka yet again.
