Swamy All Praises for Dhoni After His Swashbuckling Performance Against Sri Lanka

"When I went into bat, Dhoni told me to play my natural game, 'play as if you are playing a Test match.' He told me not to take any pressure", quoted Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

"It helps someone like Dhoni because he doesn't play Test cricket anymore and this long streak of matches will help him to be in touch with the worldwide games and finding some momentum and sticking to it".

Meanwhile skipper Virat Kohli said he had no regrets about changing the middle-order, a decision which nearly cost India the game. The duo forged a 100-run partnership and finished the proceeding with more than two overs to spare.

Lankan off-spinner Akila Dananjaya took six for 54, his maiden ODI five-wicket haul, to trigger an Indian middle order collapse after an aggressive start from Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.

Indian captain Virat Kohli, who was also one of the victims of Akila Dananjaya, called the match as a odd game. Perhaps he could have scored a thousand more runs had he came to play early in the innings.

Dananjaya bowled eight overs in a row and then captain Upul Tharanga held him back, but when he returned for his second spell, Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar were well set.

The Indians got a ideal start in the chase of 231 (D/L Method).

"I'm an off-spinner, (but) wicket-taking balls are leg-spin and googly".

Asked how he countered Dananjaya, who was on fire, Bhuvneshwar said, "I had a plan against him".

But ice cool Dhoni kept the chase on track with the gutsy Kumar, who had gone wicketless during his spell as the team's pace spearhead. Not fifty but match winning knock because one-day is a kind of format which doesn't suit my batting as I am not the kind of batsman who can hit big sixes. "Good to come through eventually", a relived Kohli said. Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar batted sensibly. The Indian openers added 109 runs for the first wicket. Sri Lanka were found guilty of bowling three overs short within the stipulated time.

Kusal Mendis and Angelo Mathews fell shortly after, but Milinda Siriwardana and Chamara Kapugedara stabilised the innings with a 91-run partnership, during which Siriwardana brought up his half-century.

Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while Chahal took two, and Pandya and Axar Patel chipped in with one wicket apiece.
