India’s stand-in captain Virat Kohli is quite happy with the team’s performance in the first three ODIs against Sri Lanka and said that the key would be to take one game at a time and win it rather than think about whitewash. 

Kohli said:

It’s all about getting into good habits. The only area we are concentrating on is getting the team combination right, sticking to our strengths and creating that winning habit. We’re looking to get teams out rather than saving runs at the end of the innings now. It’s about building on every game you play. Just like you get better practising a particular shot, why not create a winning habit and win from difficult situations. This was something we lacked in the past.” 

Kohli also praised his fast bowlers especially Umesh Yadav, who has impressed one and all with his immaculate line and length and has taken 8 wickets in 3 matches so far.

He added:

I always believed Yadav, if he becomes more consistent with his bowling, would be right up there with the very best in the world. He’s got the fitness and strength, and swings the ball with a rhythmic smooth action. He’s improved a lot and I’m really impressed with him. 

“Going into the World Cup 2015, we would like to have pace up front with Ishant, Varun and Umesh bowling. We never really had two fast bowlers bowling at 150 kmph and a six feet plus bowler (Ishant) getting bounce from the wicket.”
