In the India-Sri Lanka third T20 match, the Indian team was dealt a blow by the hosts. Sri Lanka won the T20 series 2-1 by defeating Team India by 7 wickets in the third T20. This Sri Lankan team adorned with young and new players, few people expected to do something like this, but there was one player in their team who came thinking something else. It was the occasion of his birthday, which he made very special, not special. That player is – Wanindu Hasranga.
In the third T20 match, the Indian team won the toss and decided to bat first, the team management must have found the pitch right to bat only then this decision was taken but perhaps they could not read the pitch properly. The Sri Lankan team showed captain Shikhar Dhawan the way to the pavilion on the score of zero in the very first over and after that it rained continuously, as a result India could score only 82 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 8 wickets.
Hasranga’s havoc on his birthday, second cricketer to do so
If any player has the biggest credit for restricting India to 82, it is Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga. It was the 24th birthday of this leg break bowler, which he had decided to celebrate in a special way. Birthday Boy Hasaranga took 4 wickets in 4 overs while conceding 9 runs. He took the wickets of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Varun Chakraborty. With this, Hasranga has become the second player in T20 International cricket to take 4 wickets on his birthday. Earlier this feat was only done by South African spinner Imran Tahir, who took 4 for 21 on his birthday in the T20 match against Netherlands in 2014.
Won both titles
Wanindu Hasaranga troubled Team India with his constant spin in the T20 series. In the first T20, Harsanga took 2 wickets for 28 runs. Took 1 wicket for 30 runs in the second T20. While taking 4 wickets for 9 runs in the third and final T20. The player, who took 7 wickets in three matches, not only got the ‘Man of the Match’ title of the third T20, but also won the ‘Man of the Series’ title. Sri Lanka beat India for the first time so Hasaranga will never forget his birthday.
