INDvsSL- India drub past SL by 78 runs in series deciderJanuary 11, 2020
- Shikhar Dhawan silenced his critics, KL Rahul sizzled and the trio of fast bowlers
were intimidatingin India’s lopsided 78-run victory over Sri Lanka in the third T20 International on Friday, sealing the series 2-0.
- India were sent into bat by Sri Lanka captain Lasith Malinga but on a flat track, the hosts managed an above-par 201/6, largely due to Dhawan (52 off 36 balls) and Rahul’s (54 off 36 balls) opening stand of 97 in
little lessthan 11 overs.
- Shardul Thakur (21 not out off 8 balls) used his long handle to a good effect and Manish Pandey (31 off 18 balls) hardly showed any rustiness, adding 37 runs in final 2.2 overs to take the score past 200-run mark.
