He pointed out that these matches test different facets of their game, particularly with the ODI World Cup 2023 only around the corner.

India won the toss and chose to bat in the match against Sri Lanka. Openers Rohit and Shubman Gill gave them a good start.

“It’s encouraging to see how Hardik (who has been working hard on his bowling over the past couple of years) bowled that period. a difficult target to protect. We had to maintain our composure and bowl consistently since the pitch improved significantly towards the end, the 36-year-old continued.

“(Kuldeep) Bowling well for the past year or so again. He has put a lot of effort into developing his rhythm, and the previous 15 ODIs he has played show the benefits.”
