Sri Lanka Captain Angelo Mathews said that batting would be the key for Sri Lankan team's victory against the so far unbeaten Indian team in the semi-finals of ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

Mathews stated this at a news conference after the players had a tough outing during the net practice at Cardiff in Wales.

He exuded confidence about his team performance and emerging victorious in the match against India on Thursday (June 20) and also mentioned his batsmen were in good form and could score a century on any day.
