India beat Sri Lanka in T20I


India beat Sri Lanka in T20I

Paceman Shardul Thakur picked four key wickets to set up a comfortable six-wicket win for India in a tri-series Twenty20 international against Sri Lanka on Monday (Mar 12). The 26-year-old Thakur, playing his fifth T20 international, impressed with his pace and guile to help India dismiss the hosts for 152-9.

In reply, India coasted to the target with nine balls to spare, thanks to a fine 42 off 31 balls by Manish Pandey and a 39-run knock by Dinesh Karthik.

The match was reduced to 19-overs a side after the start was delayed by about an hour due to rains and a wet outfield.

Earlier Kusal Mendis hit a quickfire half-century to ensure Sri Lanka a competitive total on the board.

The next match will be played between India and Bangladesh on Wednesday.
