SL beat Ind, 3rd T20: Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka defeats India by 7 wickets, complete rare 2-1 series win over Shikhar Dhawan & Co- Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka on Thursday defeated India to claim 2-1 series win in the T20 series. They won the series decider by 7 wickets after restricting India to a below-par total. Wanindu Hasranga was the hero of the match while India’s Rahul Chahar also impressed with a three-for. He was the only positive for India in the fixture.

Shikhar Dhawan’s decision to win the toss and opt to bat in the series decider against Sri Lanka backfired as the visitors could manage a meager 81/8 in the allotted 20 overs. Spinner Wanindu Hasaranga was the wrecker in chief with four wickets haul while Dasun Shanaka took a couple of wickets. Shikhar Dhawan departed for a duck while the likes of IPL stars Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson, and Nitish Rana disappointed. Kuldeep Yadav helped India get past their lowest total. India’s lowest total in T20Is is 74 which came against Australia in 2008. In the match, Sandeep Warrier received his maiden T20 cap for India.
