Virtually ahead of a ‘quarter – final’ match against South Africa, Indian skipper Virat Kohli aims to push harder effort in the field after a hugely heart breaking defeat for his team in the hands of Sri Lanka.
A visibly underdog Sri Lanka comprehensively chased down a big total of 321 runs at ease against Indian bowling line up.
Virat Kohli has asserted that his side will have to push harder and put more runs on the board in the next match against favorite South Africa.
“I think we have to push harder now in the next few games to give us a 20 run cushion may be after seeing a result like this because we are playing in the same ground” – Indian skipper remarked.
Sri Lanka made a stupendous 7 wicket win against India after India thrashed arch rival Pakistan in their first match of the tournament.
The defending champion India will next face South Africa at the Oval on Sunday while Sri Lanka to play Pakistan on Monday at the Sophia Gardens.
