Kuldeep: First three overs 45 runs, but I was always thinking about wickets. I knew if I got one, I would probably get the second one. The first over (I bowled) was slow in the air, but the wicket was good to bat on and the ball was coming on nicely. Later on I was bowling wide of the batsman. I realized that I need to bowl it into the wicket. They (Dhoni and Rohit) were backing me and telling to look for the wicket. Small ground with small boundaries, Dhoni and Rohit were telling me to keep away from the batsman and try the variations outside the off-stump. Seven wickets in three overs really changed the game.

Rohit: “That’s the most important thing, toss doesn’t matter much but it’s what we do on the field that matters. We are happy batting first. Looks a good pitch and we need to do the same things that we did in the first game. Need to post a good total first up and then bowl well. Yes, it’s important not to be complacent and need to take things one game at a time. Just need to do the same good things over and over again. One needs the right attitude to execute the good habits repeatedly. We are unchanged.”
Perera: “We would like to bowl first. Looks like a ground with small boundaries and so we want to chase whatever they put on the board. Two changes from the last XI, Sadeera and Chaturanga are in for Vishwa and Dasun.”
