  • 'We want our cricket back': Sri Lankan fans turn hostile following crushing 9-wicket loss to India

For me, if we were left alone and you could work with this group of players, you could get some stability and consistency over a period of six months. When I was not doing well I was just focusing on my processes. I have only kept my focus on the processes and not on the results.

Kohli and Co. have been on fire on their tour to Sri Lanka.

Virat Kohli and co will hope to carry on this positive momentum when the two teams face-off once again in the second ODI on Thursday. He was playing his first global match since October past year.

"First time I ever opened in professional cricket was for India and it was something that I had never done before. I am trying to keep repeating the same mantra for myself", said the 31-year-old Delhi batsman. Dhawan insists he needs to keep his form and fitness levels up as the younger players in the national side keep him on his toes.

Only Sachin Tendulkar (5,490) and Ricky Ponting (4,186) have scored more runs in winning chases, while Kohli tops the list of century-makers (Tendulkar is second with 14).

Skipper Virat Kohli also praised Dhawan for his innings and said the team wanted him to stay in the happy zone, which he is in now. I think the answer to that is undoubtedly yes. I was just watching the ball and playing the ball.

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. According to Kohli, the ball was coming onto the bat like a "dream" after India bowled out Sri Lanka for 216 in 43.2 overs.

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. It is a pecking order that you need to look at. Over the past couple of years they might have had some easy opponents, but it is the manner of the wins that really must please Virat Kohli and his team. "It's all about what gives us more balance".

The national selection committee, headed by former cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya, has fielded 40 players in ODIs since taking over the role in May previous year.

"I don't use those harsh words". In Champions Trophy, they even beat us. That's pretty obvious. You do get angry. What followed was a blink-and-you-miss type of procession by Sri Lankan batsmen to and for the dressing room.
