In what turned out to be a thriller, India reigned supreme as they snatched a three-wicket win from the jaws of Sri Lanka, in the second of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy on Thursday, following a healthy scare from Akila Dananjaya. Nevertheless, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was all-praise for the young spinner, following his memorable spell, for which he was adjudged the Man of the Match. Kohli was also questioned for his decision to change the batting order, which had possibly led to the collapse. However, the skipper defended his decision, saying that as the team was in a good position of 110 for the loss of a wicket, it was worth taking the risk and giving the others a chance.

“When you’re 110 for 1 in a chase of 230, you want to give everyone a chance to bat. I don’t have any regrets. If I had come at No. 3, I would have still missed that ball because he [Akila Dananjaya] was bowling that well. It was quite an exciting game of cricket, fans and players must have been entertained. It is good for us to come through eventually. Two 100-run partnerships in a chase of 230 with seven wickets, that’s quite bizarre. This kind of thing does not happen in this game often,” said Kohli during the post-match presentation ceremony.

Speaking on Dananjaya’s spell, Kohli said, “We thought he was the off-spinner with a good leg-break, but he got four wickets off googlies. We’ll be more careful next time. Credit to him for pitching the ball in the right areas.” Meanwhile, Dananjaya, on being asked about his spell, said, “The off-spin was working, so continuously used the variations. I came back to the hotel at around 11pm last night following my wedding.”
