Angelo Mathews Blames Sri Lankan Batsmen for Huge Loss.
Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews yesterday, blamed the 169-run loss against India in the opening ODI, on the batsmen.
Chasing 364 for a win, Sri Lanka were shot out for 194 in 39.2 overs and Mathews did not hide his disappointment after trailing the 5 match series.
Mathews told reporters at the post match interaction that chasing 360-plus you need to show a different approach in the first 10 overs, and that he thought their downfall was the first 10 overs while batting.
The Lankan skipper further said they always knew India would be a tough opposition at home.
