No regrets about shuffling the batting order- Kohli

A change in the batting order almost costs Virat Kohli the game, but a inspired innings from Bhuvneshwar Kumar along with the composure of Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the other end, who took India to a memorable three wicket win over Sri Lanka in the second ODI at Pallekele. Indian skipper while defending its decision said that he has no regret about his decision as he wanted other batsman some time in the middle. India got off to a blistering start by reaching 109 - 0 in 15 overs but crumbled to 131-7 after a magical spell from Akila Dananjaya.

"When you're 110 for 1 in a chase of 230, you want to give everyone a chance to bat. I don't have any regrets. If I had come at No.3, I would have still missed that ball because he (Akila Dananjaya) was bowling that well," Kolhi, who was dismissed for just four runs, said.

"It was quite an exciting game of cricket, fans and players must have been entertained. It is good for us to come through eventually. Two 100-run partnerships in a chase of 230 with seven wickets, that's quite bizarre. This kind of thing does not happen in this game often," he added.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was also all praises for the mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya who almost drowned India to an embarrassing defeat by some outstanding bowling display, ending up with figures of 6 for 54.

"We thought he was the off-spinner with a good leg-break, but he got four wickets off googlies. We'll be more careful next time. Credit to him for pitching the ball in the right areas."

"The off-spin was working, so continuously used the variations. I came back to the hotel at around 11pm last night," he said.
