Kohli fires India to seven-wicket T20 win

India are a ruthless side with immense work ethics says Sri Lanka coach Nic Pothas

In this match, Team India will have to end the target tour with 9-0. The southpaw was one of the mainstays for India in Tests with 358 runs in 3 matches at an fantastic average of 89.50, apart from being the man of the series in the Tests.

Put in to bat after a rain-delayed start, the hosts lost the opening duo of skipper Upul Tharanga (5) and Niroshan Dickwella (17) within the first five overs to totter at 46/2.

"We are a side that's developing". India are a side that is complete and a side with huge quality.

"We just maybe needed to compete a little bit more".

"Very special, hasn't been done before (talking of the clean-sweep)", Kohli said after the game. If that does not make him the greatest limited-overs batsman, the criteria must be absurd.

'Star Wars: Episode IX' loses writer/director Trevorrow over movie vision
The big one? That the new director of Episode IX will be a woman and/or someone from a minority background. A great Star Wars film finds the right balance of fun and excitement with meaningful, emotional moments.

But if one rolls back the match footage to the very start i.e.at the time of toss, it appears that a mistake, possibly resulting from a miscommunication, went unnoticed. Their work ethic is huge.

Sri Lankan batsmen may know a lot about mystery bowlers, having dealt with the likes of Ajantha Mendis, but the series ended before they could come to grips with Kuldeep's bowling.

Kohli's 54-ball knock secured India's triumph, as the tourists chased down their 171 targetl with four balls to spare.

"A joint venture of Petronet LNG along with Japanese and Sri Lankan companies will develop an LNG Terminal in Sri Lanka to provide re-gassified natural gas to various power plants, domestic and transport sectors in Sri Lanka", Petronet said.

"It was a competitive total. The mindset stays the same, we need to play to win and have to ensure that complacency doesn't creep in". The vessel after assigning the pennant number CG 60 will join the Sri Lanka Coast Guard. They have been unable to achieve home victories against Bangladesh, Zimbabwe or India. No coach in the world teaches you 'How to get back in the crease while batting when MS Dhoni is behind the stumps?' It is about time they start teaching that, at least till Dhoni is playing global cricket. "When you look at the way they go about their work and the culture that Virat has created within that team, it's very, very impressive", Pothas added.
