Ton-up Dhawan powers India to big win over Sri Lanka

Ton-up Dhawan powers India to big win over Sri Lanka”

"The good thing is that he is capitalising on his purple patch.", Kohli said after India's massive 9 wicket victory in Dambulla. With Kohli for company, he brought up India's 50 in the ninth over and after the first powerplay, the visitors were placed at a comfortable 64 for one.

"I think it's been a huge help for our guys". "We're going to experiment and embrace that".

Anushka is often seen visiting the cricketer whenever he is away on national duty.

Chasing a paltry 217, India did not make the best of starts as Rohit Sharma (4) was run out in the fifth over when he lost his bat and did not ground his feet behind the crease to beat Chamara Kapugedara's throw.

The national selection committee, headed by former cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya, has fielded 40 players in ODIs since taking over the role in May past year.

A lot of batsmen erred in judgement and played false shots to effect the middle order collapse that put Lanka out of the hunt of a good total. "But he has grabbed his opportunities well as he was the man of the series in West Indies, so he continues to be in the set-up", he added.

"We feel that KL Rahul is a very solid player and before injury he had done well in all the three formats". Jadhav, however, justified the faith placed in him by Kohli by picking him ahead of Manish Pandey when he trapped Dickwella in front as he missed the line of a faster delivery while attempting to sweep.

"Yes (we have our eyes set on 2019)".

"If it was up to me and we had control over what we did, then we could probably give you a timeline (as to when the team will start winning)". He has got a ton in Australia as well. Asked about the move to play Axar Patel in place Kuldeep Yadav, he said, "We thought Axar was a gun fielder and felt that one wrist spinner is enough". There is no guarantees for anyone. While at times members of the coaching staff have been optimistic the team's form would turn around soon, no one has been able to pinpoint a specific time for when improved results can be expected.

"It is quiet special for me".

The Sanath Jayasuriya-led selection committee has fielded 40 players in ODIs since taking over in May previous year. I am playing quite similarly to those times. It was quiet adventurous first couple of games for me. You have to prepare 24 months in advance.
