With its back to the wall, Team India responded like champions, said coach Rahul Dravid in an inspiring dressing room speech after his young side registered a series-clinching win in the second ODI against Sri Lanka here.
Chasing 276, India were reduced to 193-7 in 36th over but Deepak Chahar (69 not out) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19 not out) shared an unbroken 84-run stand to take the visitors home with three wickets in hand.
“The opposition was going to respond, they’re also an international team. They responded, and we responded back like a champion team,” Dravid said in a video posted on bcci.tv. “With our back to the wall, we found a way to break them. So really well done to all of you. Fantastic job.”
