Presentation Quotes:
Tharanga: 'This was my first series after six months and I took some time to get into the groove. Playing with Mahela gave me utmost confidence. After I got past my hundred, I decided to attack as there were overs and wickets left. This century will give me plenty of confidence.'
Upul Tharanga is the MoM for his unbeaten knock of 174.
Mathews: 'We needed this win after we lost the toss. Mahela and Tharanga batted superbly. Mahela showed his class and Tharanga batted brilliantly after struggling at the start. The bowlers also bowled wonderfully. I am doing my bit in contributing to the team in any way and I hope to continue the good work.'
Virat Kohli: 'It was a tough day at the office. We were not upto the mark with the ball. The Sri Lankans batted really well. When we batted, we did not apply ourselves. We needed a quick start on the board and we could not do it. Chasing a total close to 350, we needed momentum but we could not do it. We have to take everything in our stride. I did not consider the option of the pinch-hitter as our top order was firing. We need to rectify our mistakes. If we win the next two matches convincingly, we can reach the final and we are confident of winning it.'
India showed no intent whatsoever in this chase. By the end of 10 overs, India were crawling around at a run-rate just under three. They kept on losing wickets and only Ravindra Jadeja showed some character with an unbeaten 49. Herath and Senanayake chipped in with wickets at crucial intervals as Sri Lanka rounded off the perfect day in style. Join us in a bit for the presentation.
Sri Lanka have achieved victory by 161 runs and thanks to this massive win, they have achieved the bonus point. This is the second largest victory for Sri Lanka against India in ODIs. The series now shifts to Port-of-Spain.
