Sri Lanka can't stop India in Colombo

13 March 2018

India has won the toss and ask SL to bat first.

After a fabulous 55-run knock by opener Kusal Mendis, Indian bowlers did a great job to restrict Sri Lanka to 152/9 in 19 overs in the rain-affected Nidahas Trophy match at the R Premadasa stadium here on Monday. Both the teams would surely want to win this game as the previous loss of Sri Lanka against Bangladesh has brought the three teams at the same level on the point table.

Thisara Perera led the side in his absence. "So I think those crucial 2-3 wickets kept coming and we were probably able to cut down the total by 15-20 runs", he said about his performance. Thakur also bowled a peach of an over to pick up two wickets in the last over of the Sri Lankan innings. The hosts started on a steady note but when the scoreboard was reading 25 in three overs, opener Danushka Gunathilaka (17) was dismissed by pacer Shardul Thakur.

But India pulled things back bit with two wickets in back-to-back overs. While Perera perished in search of one big shot too many - caught by Chahal off Shardul - Washington went through Jeevan's defence with his guile.

Rohit Sharma (11) started the chase positively with a six and a four in the first over but the introduction of Akila Dananjaya (2-19) changed the complexion of the game. Mushfiq first put on a 51-run stand for the third wicket with Soumya, followed by a 42-run partnership with stand-in captain Mahmudullah. The at-the-moment spin spearhead has had two decent outings this time around, and he will be intent on stamping his wrist-spinning dominance on Sri Lanka yet again.
