Mirpur, Bangladesh: Sri Lanka vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal on Thursday said that his team was not too much worried about Virat Kohli's fine form as his side's bowling attack can unsettle the Indian batting line-up in their crucial Asia Cup league match on Friday. (Preview)

The Lankans began their Asia Cup campaign with a 12-run victory over defending champions Pakistan with slinging paceman Lasith Malinga taking a five-for, and Chandimal said his side's bowling can take on the Indian batting.

"India are a very good side, especially in last two three years they have been playing good cricket. Virat Kohli is batting exceptionally well. They have some really good players but we got bowlers like Malinga. So we will see tomorrow," Chandimal said on the sidelines of the team's practice at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium here.
