Presentation
Kumar Sangakkara, winning captain and Man of the Match "The wicket was pretty good to bat on. What set us up was that the two openers saw through the six overs, even though they didn't get off to a flying start. We were outstanding in the first 16 overs, we need to a bit more ruthless and finish them off. Great all-round performance, everyone fought hard and showed hunger to win."

MS Dhoni "At least we were not missing catches before. We are not a brilliant fielding side, but we are not known to dropping catches. It's getting difficult for us to get into T20 groove. Most of us treat them as warm-up for ODIs."

On that note okay bye

Nonetheless a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka, their first of the tour. And it also breaks their four-match losing streak in T20s. And India's losing streak now moves to four
