Nidahas Trophy 4th T20: India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets

13 March, 2018, 10:46 | Author: Rachael Silva

India will play Sri Lanka in their fourth Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) on March 12, 2018.

India lost the tri-series opener against the hosts on March 6 thanks to Kusal Perera's heroics with the bat. Really happy to receive the award. "The next few months will be about how I improve my game now that I have got the confidence from the team".

10 wins for India against Sri Lanka, their joint-most against any side.

"Well, it was nothing special". It was a really good wicket but as a bowling unit, we did not execute well.

Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees chief Chris Broad hit Chandimal with the punishment after it was ruled that Sri Lanka were four overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

In reply, India did not get off to an ideal start after both their openers Rohit Sharma (11) and Shikhar Dhawan (8) fell cheaply.


By the time he was dismissed, India were left needing around seven an over off the last nine, and Pandey and Karthik had little difficulty in securing that. "It was a complete team effort", Rohit analysed.

So after one round of matches, each team have won one and lost one.

Mendis though got little support from the other batsmen as the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

Shardul returned with impressive figures of four for 27, while young off-spinner Washinton Sundar scalped two wickets as India fought back strongly after leaking runs in the first 10 overs. The partnership surpassed the previous best of 71, between Imrul Kayes and Soumya Sarkar, at the same venue when the Tigers toured Sri Lanka past year while the best powerplay - 76 - had come against New Zealand in 2013.

But thereafter, Manish and Karthik stitched an unbeaten 68-run partnership for the fifth wicket to guide India home comfortably. The batting did well initially, but our middle-order failed. The three pacers Taskin, Mustafizur and Rubel conceded 40, 48 and 45 runs respectively. "A total of 175-180 would be competitive and could have been defended as well", Perera pointed out. Sri Lanka bounced back with a couple of useful wickets but Mushfiqur Rahim played a gem of an innings to take Bangladesh to a much-needed win.
