For Sri Lankan skipper Thisara Perera the win against India at Dharamshala was a good one.

"It was a very good one. After a while it was our first win and we had gone through 12 games without winning one. Now the  focus of course is on another match. We have to give 200 per cent to our bowlers. They bowled brilliantly and kept to the right areas on that wicket. That is why we were able to be successful," he said here on Tuesday.

On the conditions in Mohali, he said, "I know the conditions here. I have been part of the Kings XI Punjab team for a few years and as usual it looks a very good batting wicket. It will be a high scoring game. We have to handle situations well."

On the injuries in the team, Perera informed, "Suranga is fine. Only issue is Dhananjaya. He is not available for the next game."

Perera denied there was any pressure on the team. "No pressure for us. Just another game. Everyone knows that if we win tomorrow, we will win the series. We have to give 200 percent, all of us. We will see what happens tomorrow."

Perera agreed Sri Lanka had a good chance. "This is a fine opportunity to win the series. The first game is history. I know this is a good opportunity for us to win. I don’t think anyone else has done that in the last few years. Good chance for us as we are leading the series. We want to win and then we can settle down for a 2-0 series win."
