India v Sri Lanka, 1st ODI: New format, same result

Kohli spoke after India humiliated Sri Lanka by nine wickets in the first ODI of the five-match series.

He said he was in similar form during the 2013 Champions Trophy after he scored a majestic maiden Test hundred against Australia. The mental freedom helps me keep confidence in myself. Just before the series Dhawan came back from a hand injury and led India A to an innings victory against the touring Bangladesh A side at Bangalore.

It seems Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood starlet Anushka Sharma are having the time of their lives in Sri Lanka.

Though they went for the run and got it easily, it was a hilarious moment to see up there from the dressing room and captain Virat Kohli had a good time watching it.

"We've got to take that on the chin as staff, as players, and that's the reality of sport", said Pothas after the heavy defeat.

Earlier, Sri Lanka made a positive start with openers Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka treating India's new-ball bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya with disdain.

Put into bat, Sri Lanka were placed at 150/2 at one stage, but then collapsed to 216 all out with Axar Patel taking career-best 3-34. I was just watching the ball and playing the ball.

NYT Admits Its Front Page Climate Change Article Was Wrong
Almost 200 nations agreed as part of the Paris accords to limit or cut fossil fuel emissions. In the USA , the report says the largest temperature increases have taken place in the West.

But soon, after 12 overs, when the spinners were introduced, it was India gaining the upper edge as the Sri Lankan batsman found it hard to tackle them.

Anushka is often seen visiting the cricketer whenever he is away on national duty. "They got off to a really good start". He is a bit old now and with time I feel that his pace has gone down a bit. So he is an impact player and we all know that.

"We are talking about the good health of our nation and clearly in sometime, we are going to have healthier people around, because it is about living a healthy lifestyle, being fit, being more active and what is going to happen after that is something that we can be proud of".

"I don't use those harsh words".

At the end of the day, all India can do is beat the opposition in front of them. While at times members of the coaching staff have been optimistic the team's form would turn around soon, no one has been able to pinpoint a specific time for when improved results can be expected.

"When you get consistency within a team of players, you will see improvements in performance", Pothas said.
