India vs Sri Lanka 5th ODI 2017 Highlights
Virat Kohli (India captain): “It’s quite amazing to have won the series 5-0. We always thought the shorter format is going to be much more challenging. The youngsters and the spunk on the field have worked for us. All round, it’s been a complete series for us. We’ve been playing some good cricket. We didn’t win three games in the shorter format before this, and now we have six in a row including the West Indies series.”
Jasprit Bumrah (Man of the Series): “It’s always a dream to play Test cricket, but I’ll wait for my chance. It was my first visit to Sri Lanka and I’m glad I did well. I was focussing on my preparation, I had time to rest and it makes you hungry. It’s been a long journey with Malinga and I’ve learned a lot.”
Upul Tharanga (Sri Lanka captain): “These are difficult times for us. India were brilliant throughout the tournament. Once we were looking at 260-70 but we lost some wickets. Our batting disappointed. We could not get the partnerships going. Losing a few main players was also the reason.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Man of the Match): “I wasn’t among wickets in the first few matches. But I was happy with the way I bowled today. We knew they were not strong against slower balls. I did not want to prove anything. Whenever I got the opportunity I wanted to do well for my team.”
