India captain Virat Kohli on Thursday said that his team was not invincible after the defending champions allowed Sri Lanka to chase down a target of 322 to win their ICC Champions Trophy match at The Oval. India, inspired by Shikhar Dhawan’s superb 125, racked up a healthy total of 321/6 but Sri Lanka knocked off the runs with eight balls left to leave Group B wide open. Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis were the heroes as the islanders chased down the target to upset India by seven wickets. This was the most successful run chase in ICC Champions Trophy history. India will face South Africa in their remaining group game, while Sri Lanka will take on Pakistan.
