Here we will provide you with all the information about Srilanka vs India Highlights.
Sri Lanka won the toss and was selected to bowl first.
So the Sri Lankan team with their team came from the dugout. Form Indians sides out walk the two India openers – Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul – his eyes closed as he offers a silent prayer and attacks Sri Lankan players silently. Dilshan Madushanka will open the attack. Here we go.
Dilshan Madhushanka did bowl two wides at the start of the over. His first delivery swung, and KL Rahul was lucky to take this run, but it was challenging. But KL Rahul risks and completes this single. Just four runs from the first over of the left-arm pacer without any loss.
WICKET! Mahesh Theekshana strikes in his first over by hitting the first bowl on the foot of India opener KL Rahul lbw. The Umpire raised a finger, but Rahul went for the review. After taking their time, the 3rd Umpire concluded that the ball struck the bat before hitting the boot. And the ball tracker said they have a perfect line of length and would have hit the stump. India has 11 runs in the second over with one loss. Virat Kohli comes up and starts.
Big breakthrough, Sri Lanka vs India Highlights:
WICKET! Oh, that’s a massive blow to India. Second wicket down of India. Virat Kohli wanted to set the tone – charged forward to left-arm pacer Dilshan Madhushanka but missed the flick, and the stumps have been uprooted. India 13/2 in 2.4 Overs. Suryakumar Yadav walks in to join Rohit Sharma.
Decent end of Powerplay overs. Spin returns in Mahesh Theekshana, and Rohit Sharma sweeps the second delivery to the square leg region for a four. India 44/2 in 6 Overs. Rohit Sharma 29 off 18, Suryakumar Yadav 6 off 7.
DROPPED! A loose shot from India captain Rohit Sharma as the ball flies to the right of the fielder at the extra cover – Dasun Shanka dived to his left, but his one-handed attempt didn’t bear fruit. Rohit was dropped on 40.India 65/2 in 9 Overs.
WICKET! Rohit Sharma would be disappointed. He was looking all set for a hundred tonight. Chamika Karunaratne drops one short, and Rohit hits straight into the fielder’s hands at sweeper cover. He seemed mighty disappointed. Rohit scored 72 off 41, including five fours and four sixes. India 110/3 in 12.2 Overs.
WICKET! That’s a big wicket for Sri Lanka. They have dislodged the well-set Suryakumar Yadav on 34. A good bouncer from Dasun Shanaka as he lured Suryakumar into going for the ramp. All SKY managed was a catch to the fielder at the short third-man region. India 119/4 in 14.2 Overs.
WICKET! Dasun Shanaka has the last laugh. He had tested Hardik Pandya with a slower one but was punished as the batter launched him over long-off for a six. Pandya went for another big hit but this time found the fielder at midwicket to hole out on 17. India 149/5 in 17.4 Overs.
All batsman out, Sri Lanka vs India Highlights:
WICKET! Right on, the money from Dilshan Madushanka. He starts the 19th over by cleaning up Deepak Hooda on 3. Sri Lanka continues to dent India. Score 157/6 in 18.1 Overs.
WICKET! Dilshan Madushanka continues to run through India. This time he bowls a slower delivery, and Rishabh Pant goes for the sweep but holes out in the deep. He scored 17—India 158/7 in 18.3 Overs.
WICKET! Chamika Karunaratne rolls his finger and deceives Bhuvneshwar Kumar with a slower one as he goes for a big swing only to be beaten and bowled on a duck. India 164/8 in 19.3 Overs.
So a strong finish from India, courtesy Ravichandran Ashwin, who cleared his front foot and launched the penultimate delivery from Chamika Karunaratne over midwicket for a massive six. And then, thanks to Wanindu Hasaranga, who failed to hold onto a catch at long-on, Ashwin added two more to the total to remain unbeaten on 15 off 7. India 173/8 in 20 Overs.
Rohit Sharma delivered the team talk in the huddle as Indian players listened to him intently. Sri Lanka openers Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis are out in the middle to kickstart the chase of 174. Here we go.
Change of ends for Arshdeep Singh. But this has been quite expensive for India – the left-arm pacer has leaked 18 runs. The over began with Kusal Mendis launching a full delivery over extra cover for four before taking a single. Then Pathum Nissanka spotted the slower one hitting the widish delivery over surfaces for four. And then Arshdeep tested Mendis with quick delivery, but the batter pilled it away to midwicket for a maximum. Score 45/0 in 5 Overs, chasing 174.
Some relief for India – no boundary in it. Just four runs in the second over of Ravichandran Ashwin. Sri Lanka 89/0 in 10 Overs, chasing 174. They need 85 off 60 now. Drinks break. The chase resumes with a boundary to Kusal Mendis – a lucky top-edge flying over the keeper’s head for a four. Eight runs from it. Sri Lanka 97/0 in 11 Overs, chasing 174.
100 comes up’s, Sri Lanka vs India Highlights:
WICKET! Finally, a breakthrough for India. The opening stand has been broken on 97. Pathum Nissanka must be livid with himself, though, as he played a reverse sweep hoping to take the aerial route but instead ends up being caught by Rohit Sharma at a backward point. Nevertheless, a fine inning comes to an end. He scored 52. Sri Lanka 97/1 in 11.1 Overs, chasing 174.
WICKET! One brings two. Charith Asalanka wanted to impose himself early on. He goes for the sweep shot and ends up hitting it high but not far enough to hole out to SKY at the backward square leg region. He walks back on 0. Some hope for India now. Score 97/2 in 11.4 Overs, chasing 174.
WICKET! Look at Virat Kohli’sKohli’s reaction. He’s all pumped up. Ravichandran Ashwin has struck for India with the wicket of Danushka Gunathilaka on 1. He went for the aerial shot – lofting one from Ashwin but finding KL Rahul at long-off for a soft dismissal. Sri Lanka 110/3 in 13.5 Overs, chasing 174.
WICKET! That is a massive break to Sri Lanka now. Yuzvendra Chahal with a flipper to trap well-set Kusal Mendis lbw on 57. The Umpire raised his finger, but the batter reviewed. No spike on Ultra Edge, and the ball tracker says it would have hit the sticks. Sri Lanka slips to 110/4 in 14.1 Overs, chasing 174.
Close to Win:
Hardik Pandya is back for his fourth and final over. And Dasun Shanaka is lucky that an outside edge escaped the grasp of a diving Rishabh Pant for four. And then, after outfoxing Shanaka with a pacy delivery, Pandya dropped it short and paid the price with the Sri Lanka captain guiding it over fine leg for a six. Twelve runs from the over. Sri Lanka 153/4 in 18 Overs, chasing 174.
He had seven runs to defend, but young Arshdeep Singh bowled his heart out to push the contest to the penultimate delivery. Plenty of yorkers from the left-arm pacers, but he didn’t have enough to work with SL doing the job with 1,1,2,1, 2byes. There was a chance at run out off the 5th delivery, but Rishabh Pant didn’t make the direct hit despite all three stumps visible to him and the batter quite far away after racing away to steal a bye. The ball rolled to Arshdeep, who also failed to effect the run out at the non-striker’s end. The missed throw gave SL another chance at stealing a bye and winning by six wickets.
Sri Lanka won this match by six wickets.
