Team India perpetuates their home dominance as the hosts vanquished over Sri Lanka in the 3rd T20I at Pune. India’s clinical performance sealed them the T20I series (2-0) with the first game washed out.
Sri Lanka won the toss and invited India to bat. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan got India off to an incredible start with an opening partnership of 97 runs. Sri Lanka made a little comeback in the game courtesy a magical spell from Lakshan Sandakan. Manish Pandey and Shardul Thakur helped India post a total of 201 runs courtesy their brilliant cameos.
In reply, Sri Lanka was not really competitive enough and was bowled out for just 123 runs. Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur bowled exquisitely well and picked up 3 and 2 wickets respectively. This was India’s 3rd consecutive T20I series win at home.
