After losing the T20 series, Sri Lanka will introduce a new strategy in ODI, captain Dasun Shanaka has said.

Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka said on Monday that he is focusing on the positives of the just concluded T20 International series against India and will put up a tough fight in the three-match ODI series that begins on Tuesday.

Sri Lanka came close to winning the first T20 International, but lost by two runs. The team defeated India by 16 runs in the second T20. However, Suryakumar Yadav’s blistering century in the third and final T20 in Rajkot set the stage for India to win the series 2-1.

Dasun Shanaka said on the eve of the first ODI that in the recent past, no team except South Africa has been able to win in India. We put up a tough fight in Mumbai, but they came out stronger. We have to play competitive cricket.

Emphasizing the need to perform well, Shanaka said, “It’s an important tournament for Sri Lanka as the World Cup will take place here in India so I’m looking forward to the series.” He also said that it will be a very good preparation, because the conditions will be similar. The players are prepared for this, they know the importance of this tournament.
