India complete another whitewash win in the T20Is. The Men in Blue defeated Sri Lanka in the final T20I to win the series 3- after chasing down a target of 147 runs.
WHO SAID WHAT?
Rohit | India captain: It’s a pattern of everything that comes together. We played very well. Lot of positives came out from the series. Want to understand what kind of bench strength we have. Good to give opportunities to those guys. Important to tell guys not to worry about your positions in the team. Want to fill whatever gaps we have. Keeping that in mind we want to move forward. Going to be a big challenge but always nice to have guys in form (whom to pick). Once we reach Mohali we’ll start thinking about the Tests.
Shreyas Iyer | POTM and POTS: All three knocks were special, but yesterday’s – coming in at a crucial moment, I’d pick that. Only require one ball to get into form as long as you’re keeping your eyes on the ball and playing it on its merit. The wicket was little two paced today compared to yesterday. Was playing on the merit. Outfield is so fast, just had to hit gaps. Been a rollercoster journey after my injury. Real test of you is during rehab sessions.
Shanaka | Sri Lanka captain: Want to congratulate India for a wonderful performance. Need some stitches on the hand (picked up the injury attempting a catch). Been tough without our senior bowlers. Didn’t capitalise on the first six overs today again with the bat. Pace attack has been outstanding throughout last year or so. Not so much about pace but control. This is international cricket, we have to adapt, can’t complain about conditions.
