Disappointed with his team’s repeated batting failures, Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews yesterday, came down hard on his batsmen saying their approach is not right and he needs to sit down with selectors to sort out “issues”.

Coming into the game with the series tied at 1-1, India scored 312, while Sri Lanka were shot out for 201 and lost the grip on the match.

Given to chase a mammoth 386 to win the match, Lankan batsmen once again faltered only to see some resistance from Mathews 110, and Kusal Perera 70.

Mathews said that the cause for their defeat was their first innings’ batting, but that the bowlers bowled well, and added that they will sit down with selectors and address those issues.
