A good start to 2020, says Kohli after series win

India beat Sri Lanka by 78 runs in the third and final T20I at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday to seal a 2-0 series win.In what turned out to be a good all-round effort, India made 201/6 after being put into bat before dismissing Sri Lanka for 123 to complete the comprehensive win.SKipper Virat Kohli said, 'A good start to this year. We started on the right track, chasing one game and setting the other. Very clinical as well, so I am very happy. Just the confidence of getting that 200 mark will help us.

The middle collapse was challenging but what Manish and Shardul did in the end really helped. We saw guys who turned up and who put their hands up when the senior guys don't perform and need more of this in the coming games as well. We wanted to plug some of the gaps. I think today as well, we thought 180 at one stage and crossed 200'.'In Mumbai as well, we thought 200 and crossed 230. We don't want to be a team which is tentative while batting first, and we want to show the same attitude which we bring in chases while batting first as well. All three (Rohit, Dhawan and Rahul) are solid players, it all boils down to who is batting better. Rohit has been a consistent performer. People must stop pitting people against each other and I don't believe in doing that at all.'
