Proving their consistency throughout, India concludes their tour with Sri Lanka on a high. The lone T-20 match that both the teams played saw India thrashing the Lankans ruthlessly by 7 wickets. Sri Lanka had set up a competitive score of 170-7 after losing the toss to India and batting first. However, they proved to be no match for the ‘Men in Blue’ who powered through the total with ease. Captain Virat Kohli scored a magnificent 82 while Manish Pandey kept company by making 52 runs. The two partnered 119 runs after losing both the openers quite early in the match.
While the match started on a dull note, with rains delaying the toss in Colombo. But the gloom did not last long, and thankfully for team India, the fireworks were on full display. India is gradually gearing up for the 2019 World Cup for 50 overs and experimenting with several young players before deciding on the final 11 that will play. With this, India has comprehensively beaten their opponents at all three formats in their land. After this, India faces a tough contest versus Australia when they begin playing against them on home ground. India would try to continue the same performance when they face the Kangaroos.
