Sri Lanka aiming for series victory

Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara will look for a repeat of his teams performance on Thursday night as he looks to wrap up a 2-0 series win over India when the two sides meet tonight at the PCA Stadium.

Sangakkara will look to play the same eleven as Sri Lanka play their last competitive Twenty20 game before next years Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies.

"I'm tempted to play the same eleven, which did a brilliant job in the last game. But we will take into account the conditions here before finalising the playing eleven for the match," Sangakkara said at the pre-match press conference.

After losing their three game test series against India 2-0 Sangakkara was happy with the way his side as bounced back.

"The way the players regrouped was very impressive. The kind of enthusiasm they have shown is great. I always say that Twenty20 cricket should be enjoyed, win or lose. It is with this attitude that we take the field," he said.

"It is more difficult to start afresh in T20 games. We will try to take the momentum into the next game. The bowlers come at you with a different plan. The batters also have a different plan to counter the bowlers. It is a question of coming up with new ideas, keep thinking and adjusting," he pointed out," said the visiting captain.

"We always have to come up with new ways to improve. Momentum is good as it gives us the confidence, self-belief. It gives us the belief that we can repeat all the good things," Sangakkara said.
