Dhawan: We lost too many wickets in the middle overs


India Captain Sikhar Dhawan said- We got a good start but again we lost too many wickets in the middle overs. It didn’t go our way. We tried some new players. We were 50 runs short in the end,” Dhawan said at the end of the match.

India lost the final ODI-

Dhawan rued losing too many wickets. And the inability to get a good partnership going for his team as India lost the final ODI to Sri Lanka by three wickets. Opting to bat, India started off well, reaching 147/3 before rain interrupted play. But after a 90-minute break, when the match resumed, their batsmen fell to the spine of Praveen Jayawickrama and Akila Dananjaya, losing six wickets for 68 runs.

Long time quarantine-

I am glad the players made their debut because everyone was in quarantine for such a long time. And we had this chance because we sealed the series in the last game,” he added.

Five youngsters as Sanju Samson, Nitish Rana, Rahul Chahar, Krishnappa Gowtham, and Chetan Sakariya received their ODI caps. With the series already in the bag. it was expected that India would make a few changes. But perhaps nobody expected six changes including five debutants. Dhawan explained the reason behind it.

 From 151/2, India restricted Sri Lanka to 220/7 and was once again in line to pull a rabbit out of the hat. Chahar picked up 3/54 and Sakariya impressed with 2/34. But it wasn’t enough for India to pull through this one.

The India captain pointed out-

“I always analyze where I can improve and get better in strategies. Looking forward to the T20 series. Of course, we were positive that we could defend the target but we knew that we were short. The boys gave a good fight and it was interesting in the end. We always have to keep learning.”
