Sri Lanka lost their opening one-dayer by 169 runs after India posted an imposing 363 for five.

"I think in any match you have to start well and especially when you are chasing 350-plus. We didn't do that and they (India) bowled really well. The two new-ball bowlers were really good. But come tomorrow, I think we have to change our approach," said Dilshan.

"We need to attack a bit in the first 10 overs and put the Indian bowlers under pressure. We didn't take the risk (at Cuttack) but it might be tomorrow," he said.
