Hambantota: Man of the match of India's 21-run win over Sri Lanka in the first ODI, Virat Kohli, has said that the national jersey inspires him to do well each time he steps onto the field.
"I get really motivated when I put on the India jersey. It is a responsibility, so I want to perform in the best way I can," said Kohli, who scored a 133-ball 106 as India posted 314-6 before restricting Sri Lanka to 293-9 in the day-night match for a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
"I was fortunate to have done well on a consistent basis. It was a matter of going out there and applying yourself and look for the best possible result," said Kohli who cracked his 12th one-day hundred, and fourth in the last five matches.
