The Indian cricket team is touring in Sri Lanka. India beat Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in the 3rd one-day cricket match at Pallekele yesterday, in a five-match ODI match between the two teams. The 4th one-day match between the two teams is scheduled for Colombo 31.
After the defeat, Sri Lanka captaincy captain Kapugedera said:
There is no problem outside the team. I think we have forgotten the tweezer. I’ve seen that many teams have such a failure. If we win in a match. Let’s get out of it. In the last two games we have good progress in our bowling. Our batsmen need to raise their quality. We can succeed if we score good scores.
Players must realize their responsibility and make it better. If you do that, you can win. There are some weaknesses in the team. Need to take the necessary steps to find it before the next match. I do not know what people think about us. But for me the team has no problems. We do not have any difference as a team. Now the only thing we need to work better and win. Losing the two ODI series regularly in County is a major setback.
I did not think much of the team selection debate. In the future we will be the best team. He said so.
In an interview with Indian team captain Virat Kohli on the victory, “The small target is always a trick. This has happened 2 to 3 times in a similar match. But I do not think it’s a big problem.
The pitch was challenging when chasing. In such games, middle order batsmen need to learn how to play patiently. Roghit Sharma, Tony Atham was great. Bumra played well in the ball. He has dropped 11 wickets in 3 matches. Players will be given the opportunity to play in the remaining matches, “he said.
India’s pace bowler Jaspit Bumra said in a interview that “a bowler should constantly learn new things. That is my main goal at all times. This is the first time I play in Sri Lanka. I never played here before. So playing a different environment is challenging.
It is a good thing for seniors to know their bowling experience. I played a lot of things from Malinga while playing for Mumbai Indians. Learning is always worthwhile and useful. It’s a pleasure to share the success of the Indian team, “he said.
