Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene stated that his side were short by 30-40 runs and said that made the difference in their One-Day International match against India at the WACA, Perth.


“We were probably 30-40 runs short. We had our chances but India played better cricket than us. We kept wickets in hand but we did not probably play their spinners well. We got bogged down in the middle period.


“We needed to get runs on the board but fell short. A score of 250-260 would have been good total. Indian batting line-up was tough. We picked wickets but turned out to be not enough,” he said. (PTI)
