Colombo: The Sri Lankan cricket team defeated India by 7 wickets in the third and final T20 International match on Thursday. This series win became memorable for the hosts as they defeated Team India in the T20 International series for the first time. In the third match played at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka achieved the target of 82 runs for the loss of three wickets with 33 balls to spare. After the match, Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka won the hearts of Indian fans with his statement.
The Indian team continued to play this series even after the Kovid-19 cases came to the fore in their camp. On the Sri Lanka tour, the Indian team went with 20 members and five net bowlers. Krunal Pandya turned out to be Kovid-19 positive before the second T20 International and eight players remained in isolation due to their close contact. After this, India included five net bowlers in the main squad and completed the series. Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka was very impressed by this.
After the match, Shanaka said, ‘First of all, I want to thank the BCCI for playing the series in these conditions also. Also thanks to Rahul Dravid and Shikhar Dhawan. Indian fans were delighted to know that their team’s spirit was appreciated for playing with a third-rate team.
After this, talking about the match, the Sri Lankan captain said that the entire team worked hard on their fitness and everyone wants to be world class. He said, ‘I had bowling options, so I could use them in the middle overs. Not just my fielding, all the boys have worked hard on their fitness and they want to be world class players.
Lucky to have got to lead this team: Shanaka
Dasun Shanaka was very happy with the players of his team and expressed hope that Sri Lanka cricket will have a very good future. He said, ‘You could see that all the players performed and handled the situation differently. I am fortunate to be leading this team. When we get a low score, it is good that we start well. Right now the players of our team are young. They are learning. Hopefully these players will make a very good future for Sri Lankan cricket.
