Shreyas Iyer is up for a chat, he says he use to plan his innings really well and that is what he has learnt, he tries to play the situation more and that worked for him. Adds you need to study the bowlers and what would be the plans against him and when he actually bats, he lets his insticts take over. Adds pressure is always there when playing for the Indian side and he tries to do his best.
SRI LANKA (PLAYING XI) - Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (WK), Avishka Fernando, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (C), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Dunith Wellalage, Kasun Rajitha, Dilshan Madushanka.

Dasun Shanaka says the dew can play a big factor. States the batters need to score big runs on such wickets. Informs they have one change!
TOSS - SRI LANKA HAVE WON THE TOSS AND ELECTED TO FIELD!
PITCH REPORT - Deep Dasgupta says the square boundaries are short but the straight ones are long. Ajit Agarkar says the pitch might look dry but it should be a good one to bat on. Adds dew could be a factor and the team fielding second will have a tough time. Reckons chasing becomes a lot easier.
It is time for the 50-over format. After a decent T20I series, it is time to shift focus on a format which is a little longer. Both the sides will use this series to prepare for the upcoming World Cup. The Indians have their big names back, players who will more or less be featuring in the mega event. Lanka on the other hand, will be going ahead with the same players who played the T20Is. Toss and teams in a bit...
