Sri Lanka made a slow start
Chasing the target, the Sri Lankan team made a slow start. Openers Avishka Fernando and Minod Bhanuka added 23 runs for the first wicket. This partnership was broken by Krunal Pandya by dismissing Bhanuka in the third ball of the third over. Bhanuka took a wrong shot and gave a catch to Suryakumar Yadav at cover. He scored 10 runs in 7 balls with 2 fours. It is known that Bhanuka batted well for the team in the ODI series.
Dhananjay D’Silva’s bat did not work
India got the second success in the form of Dhananjay de Silva. De Silva, who came out to play after Minod Bhanuka, could not collect runs. He scored runs after playing 10 balls. He hit a four. De Silva was made his victim by spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on the second ball of the seventh over. He wanted to defend on a good length ball but got clean bowled. His wicket fell on the total score of 48. He shared a 25-run partnership with Avishka Fernando for the second wicket.
Bhuvneshwar hunted Fernando
Sri Lanka got the third blow in the form of opener Avishka Fernando. Fernando scored 26 runs in 23 balls with 3 fours. Fernando, who batted well in the ODI series, seemed to be in rhythm, but could not play a big innings. He was walked by Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the first ball of the eighth over. Fernando was caught by Sanju Samson at deep square leg in the process of hitting a big shot. His wicket fell on the total score of 50.
Asheen Bandara returned cheaply to the pavilion
Sri Lanka’s fourth wicket fell as Ashen Bandara. He scored 9 runs in 19 balls. Bandara may not have played a big innings but he supported Charit Aslanka very well. He and Aslanka shared a 40-run partnership for the fourth wicket. Bandara was dismissed by Hardik Pandya in the last ball of the 13th over. He missed on a slower delivery and got bowled. He returned to the pavilion on a total score of 90.
Chahar gave two blows in one over
Indian fast bowler Deepak Chahar gave two blows to the Sri Lankan team in the 16th over. He made debutant Charit Aslanka on the third ball of the over and Vanindu Hasaranga on the fifth ball. In an attempt to hit a six, Aslanka caught Prithvi Shaw at deep midwicket. He scored 44 runs in 26 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes. His wicket fell on the total score of 111. At the same time, Hasranga got bowled in an attempt to make a shot in the direction of extra cover. He returned to the pavilion without opening an account.
Sri Lanka lost 6 wickets adding 19 runs
Sri Lanka’s score till the 15th over was 107 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. After this the team faltered and they lost 6 wickets adding just 19 runs. Deepak Chahar’s two wickets in the 16th over put more pressure on the Sri Lankan team. From here Sri Lanka did not get any chance to recover. At the same time, fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar did the right thing. Bhuvi hunted down Chamika Karunaratne (3), Dushmantha Chamira (1) and Isru Udana (1) to bundle out Sri Lanka for 126 runs.
Prithvi Shaw returned to the pavilion at zero
Batting after losing the toss, the Indian team made a disappointing start. Debutant Prithvi Shaw returned to the pavilion without opening an account. He was made his victim by fast bowler Dushmantha Chamira on the very first ball of the innings. Shaw tried to flick a full length ball but the ball took the outer edge of the bat and caught it in the glove of wicketkeeper Minod Bhanuka. Chamira gave away 4 runs in the first over. Opener Shaw played two good innings in the ODI series but he stumbled in the first match of the T20 series.
Sanju Samson becomes Hasranga victim
India got the second blow in the form of Sanju Samson. Samsam, who came out to play after the departure of Prithvi Shaw, scored 27 runs in 20 balls. He hit 2 fours and 1 six in his innings. Samson was lbw off the first ball of the sixth over by spinner Vanindu Hasaranga. He could not understand the constraint of the ball falling on the pitch and tried to play a cross on the leg side. However, the ball did not hit the bat and hit the pad. Umpire Kumar Dharmasena raised his finger as soon as Hasranga appealed. Samson shared a 51-run partnership with Shikhar Dhawan for the second wicket.
India made a hundred in 71 balls
Indian team scored 100 runs in 71 balls. India completed a hundred in 11.5 overs. The team got three extra runs during this period. Despite a poor start, India completed the initial 50 runs in 32 balls, but had to play a little more deliveries to add the next 50 runs. India collected the latter 50 runs in 39 balls.
Shikhar Dhawan missed half century
India’s third wicket fell in the form of opener Shikhar Dhawan. Dhawan batted well but he got stuck with a half-century. He played an innings of 46 runs. Dhawan faced 36 balls and hit 4 fours and 1 six. Debutant Chamika Karunaratne showed him the way to the pavilion on the first ball of the 15th over. He was looking to hit a big shot and was caught at deep square leg by Ashen Bandara. Dhawan’s wicket fell on the total score of 113. He shared a 63-run partnership with Suryakumar Yadav for the third wicket.
Suryakumar Yadav hits fifty
India got the fourth blow in the form of Suryakumar Yadav. Suryakumar, who was in excellent form, hit a fifty. He scored 50 runs in 34 balls with the help of 5 fours and 2 sixes. This is the second half-century of his T20 International career. Suryamar became the victim of Vanindu Hasaranga on the second ball of the 16th over. He hit a six on the first ball of the over and wanted to send the next ball outside the boundary but was caught at long off. Suryakumar returned to the pavilion on a total score of 128.
Hardik Pandya scored 10 runs
Hardik Pandya, who came to bat after Suryakumar’s dismissal, expected a quick innings from the team, but he did not perform as expected. Pandya lost his wicket after scoring only 10 runs in 12 balls. He didn’t hit any fours or sixes. Pandya was sent to the pavilion by Dushmantha Chamira in the 19th over. He was trying to get a shot on the yorker towards extra cover but the ball took the outer edge of the bat and went to wicketkeeper Bhanuka. His wicket fell on a total score of 153.
Shaw and Chakraborty’s T20 debut
India has given two players – opener Prithvi Shaw and spinner Varun Chakraborty – to debut in T20 International cricket. Shaw has played 5 Tests and 6 ODIs for India. At the same time, this is Chakraborty’s first international match. Chakraborty is known for brakes, carrom balls and leg breaks. He has proved his mettle in the IPL. For Sri Lanka, two players – Charit Aslanka and Chamika Karunaratne have got the opportunity to debut.
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat
Sri Lanka won the toss and invited India to bat first. After winning the toss, Sri Lankan captain Shanaka said that we have decided to bowl first. I think the wicket will be better later in the game. We cannot control injuries. It can change the momentum. Three matches of the T20 series are very important for us. At the same time, Indian captain Dhawan said that we wanted to bowl first because there is moisture in the pitch. However, but we have been able to score well.
India’s upper hand over Sri Lanka
The Indian team has the upper hand in the T20 against Sri Lanka. Both the teams have played 19 T20 matches so far and India have registered 13 wins. On the other hand, Sri Lanka could win only 5 matches while one match did not yield any result. The Indian team has a winning percentage of 72.2 in T20 International cricket against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has not won any T20 International series against India. Both the teams have played four T20 series so far, out of which India won three and ended in a draw.
This will happen for the first time after 5 years
Team India is playing this T20 series without its two main players Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. The last time India played without Virat and Rohit in T20 was against Zimbabwe in the year 2016. India was captained by MS Dhoni in that match, in which the team won by three runs. Let us tell you that apart from Sri Lanka, a team of India is on a tour of England. India and England will meet in a 5-match Test series on 4 August. In such a situation, the reins of the Indian team on the Sri Lanka tour have been handed over to Dhawan. Dhawan is handling the responsibility of captaincy of the international team for the first time.
