Even as MS Dhoni prepares to play his 300th game for India on Thursday, two world records await to be broken by the Man with the Midas touch.

"If you interact with him, like I have been doing for last six months, there is obviously so much to learn from him".

"I must extend my honest thanks to the players who confirmed their participation - Robin Uthappa, Suresh Raina and Yoosuf Pathan of India, Shaid Afridi, Misbha Ul Haq and Abdur Razak of Pakistan, Tyml Mills of England, Graham Cremer of Zimbabwe, Ronchi Luke of New Zealand and JP Dumini and Farhaan Berhardien of South Africa amongst others as well the respective Boards for the support extended".

India vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI will be played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

"There is no one better than him to judge you because he is watching from behind the wicket and he keeps telling me what I need to". One won't be able to express oneself so that thing which he said in the first match is till with me and I shall try to carry it forward, ' he said. So in the last six months I have learnt a lot from bowling in global matches, for example, how to overcome pressure especially when you have better batsmen over a period of time and so.

"In addition to this, a couple of key players like Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara are also not available on this date, so we felt that we could afford to wait a while and play this game at a more conducive time".

"I take it (the competition) as a positive because healthy competition is good for the team".

"I went to his room in the evening and he was just trying to get up from his bed. My only target is to get wickets for the team", he added.

Bumrah said it is a challenge for a player to give their best in different conditions and constant change and experience helps a lot in such cases.

"My bowling style isn t about restricting runs".

"Taking wickets should be a habit for bowlers".

This was India's seventh successive bilateral series victory against Sri Lanka.

Former Sri Lankan skipper and minister Arjuna Ranatunga adds fuel to Pallekele ODI controversy by requesting Sri Lankan supporters to not behave like how Indian spectators did in Cuttack. I feel lucky that I will be a part of his 300th ODI.
