The 3rd T20I between India and Sri Lanka will be played today. "But whenever we play a T20I after that, Kohli saab will be the kaptaan, so you can perhaps ask him then".

Ever since Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have been preferred by India over R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in limited-overs internationals, the young spin twins haven't disappointed, especially in the T20Is, in which Chahal tops the list of wicket-takers in 2017 with Kuldeep at No. 13.

When the Thisara Perera-led Sri Lankan side enter the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, they will have the last chance to shed the heavy load of disappointment and worries off their shoulders. "They are bowling well and generally the wrist spinners with their variations are hard to pick. But this wicket offered very little for the bowlers and was excellent for batting and we could have done better", he said. We didn't want too many dot balls.

On being questioned regarding the decision to chose to bat against a strong batting line-up, Kusal said that Sri Lanka had to back their strengths.

Rohit's partner in an Indian record 165-run opening stand was KL Rahul. "After the first match, there was a lot of pressure on me". That is all part and parcel of the game. We try to learn what we did wrong. In Dharamsala, we were in a position where the team could have folded for the lowest score possible. "We have to think of our batting and how to go about things".

The task on hand was never going to be too hard against a demoralised Sri Lankan outfit and Rohit, who had to put an end to his poor run of form in T20Is, led from the front as he scored the joint fastest century in T20 internationals to help India post the joint second highest team total of 260 runs on the board.
