MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli set new records — Trend India

  • India’s team captain Virat Kohli plays a shot

"We're doing very well in Test cricket, (but) ODIs we didn't win three games in a row before this", said Kohli when asked what the 5-0 result meant for him. While the duo didn't exchange any words, it was amply clear that Dhoni wanted Kohli to hit the winning runs after having played a stellar knock. India were in a slight spot of bother when Rohit Sharma fell soon to Vishwa Fernando leaving the visitors at 29-2. Bhuvi was accurate and in his groove right from the word go, picking up 5wickets for 42 runs and eventually going on to become the player of the match, for his outstanding effort.

India and Sri Lanka have had contrasting fortunes in the T20 format over the last one year.

"It is an honour for me to equal someone like Ricky Ponting". Virat Kohli, India's captain, said he would have preferred to bat as well, on the same pitch that was used for the fourth ODI on Thursday. The Delhi right-hander is now behind batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, who holds the record with 49 hundreds. The top seven ODI sides apart from host England as on 30 September qualify directly. Only Amit Mishra (18) and Rashid Khan (16) have picked more wickets in such a series, both of them being spinners. The medium-pacer had opener Niroshan Dickwella completely deceived by the change of pace leading to a simple return catch to the bowler. In this series, Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took five-wicket hauls. The skipper stood defiant even as the next batsman Dilshan Munaweera (4) returned soon. After the series, Virat Kohli posted the video with a caption, "Not bad for a left-handed shot". But when we get more confident in the roles we are given, then we can be more unpredictable. But after scoring around 200 runs in 25 overs with nine wickets in hands, India appeared to have lost the plot as three wickets tumbled quickly. He broke the record of former Sri Lanka wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara's record of 99 stumpings in ODIs.




Mathews had laboured to 55 runs off 97 deliveries and should have shouldered the responsibility to stay until the end after being well-set.

"Kuldeep and Chahal being wrist spinners will always keep you in the game". Their 100-partnership came off 122 balls as they looked to provide a cushion for the lower-order to attack the Indian bowling. People can watch and enjoy the live match India vs Sri Lanka in Sony Six and Sony Ten TV channels.
