Chasing 364 for a win, Sri Lanka were shot out for 194 in 39.2 overs and their captain Agnelo Mathews did not hide his disappointment after trailing the five-match series.

The Lankan skipper further said they always knew India would be a tough opposition at home.

Pleased with his fast bowlers show in the 169-runs win, skipper Virat Kohi said that it augurs well for the tours to Australia and New Zealand.
