Like I have been talking about, going out there and do my job. Not thinking about all these kind of milestones.
I know if I play well all these things will happen along the way. My job is to keep my head straight and get my team to the finishing line. The shot selection becomes important once I am in. I try and calculate how I want to go forward based on that. There has to be some discipline in your batting and I have learned that from my past.
What has happened has happened, every day is a new day in cricket. I come out thinking I have not played any ODIs or scored any hundreds.
That is the challenge as a sportsperson. He has been a champion bowler for Sri Lanka and then for Mumbai Indians.
He has shown it over the years how the teams rely on him. I have seen him in close quarters and the cricket world will miss him. As a team we are not thinking about that. We have had a great victory today and we want to celebrate that.
India, for the time being, jumped to the top of the standings with 15 points from nine games -- 7 wins, 1 loss and 1 no result. India finish the CWC19 group stages with a win! Isuru Udana dismisses Rishabh Pant 4.
Overs OUT! Lasith Malinga strikes to dismiss KL Rahul Rahul departed after scoring off balls, which included a six and 11 fours.
The opener added 55 runs for the second wicket with Virat Kohli. Overs Opening the batting suits him nicely! Perera returned figures off 0 for 34 in 10 overs. Tidy spell.
Thisara Perera gave away just three singles in it. Tidy stuff! Virat Kohli opens his account with a four off Kusan Rajitha. Kusan Rajitha gets rid of Rohit Sharma Finally a breakthrough for the Lankans. Rohit fell soon after scoring his record fifth hundred of the tournament.
Third century in a row. First batsman to achieve the feat in a World Cup. Rohit reached the landmark in 92 balls, with the help of 14 fours and two sixes. Another big one for India. He is 11 away from a record fifth hundred in the tournament.
Bowling change from both ends. Big over for India. Sri Lanka need wickets to make a comeback in the match. Right now, India openers are smoothly cruising in their run chase. Rohit now surpassed Shakib Al Hasan as the leading scorer of the tournament. But India are cruising in their run chase.
Indian batsmen are back to boundary-hitting mode. India scored just 24 runs in the last six overs.
Two singles and four straight dot balls off Isuru Udana's over. Thisara Perera conceded six runs in his first over.
Kasun Rajitha gave away just one single in it. Another big over for India. Overs 4. India off to a flier. Good one for India. Overs 1. Welcome Back! Lasith Malinga with the ball for Sri Lanka.
The wicket was playing a little bit slow, it was a bit tacky and it was turning as well. It's kind of hard. We just wanted to put a good partnership, take it to deep and then launch from the 40th over. Wherever the team needs me to bat, I'm happy to do it as long as the team is happy.
I'm willing to do anything they captain and coach want. It is quite difficult to bat on. You never know what's enough against this strong Indian batting line-up.
If we make inroads early, try and get Kohli and Rohit early, we can put pressure on the middle order. We gotta bowl pretty bowl.
I may bowl a few overs, I haven't bowled at the nets all. Glad that I contributed with the bat today, but if needed I'll bowl as well.
