India performed brilliantly after the team started off winning the first match in the series of India v/s Sri Lanka T20 International in Lucknow. Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were the heroes of the match as they pushed to 199/2 in 20 overs while Sri Lanka could only garner 137/6 in 20 overs.
Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan were seen in an amazing partnership on the field as they added 111 runs for the opening wicket. Rohit was dismissed on 44 (22) and then Shreyas Iyer joined Ishan. Ishan was dismissed on 89 (56) and Jadeja took his place.
Everyone was expecting that Sri Lanka will lose as they were playing without their key players against a strong Indian team with only 1 practice session.
Among the Sri Lankan players, Charith Asalanka played the best with 53 off 47 balls.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Venkatesh Iyer picked the two wickets each. Ravindra Jadeja who is just back after returning from his injury took one wicket. The 2nd T20I will be on February 26 in Dharamshala Himachal Pradesh.
Deepak Hooda made the ODI series debut with West Indies and now he also made his debut in the T20I series.
Catch the 2nd match live on TV at 7 pm tomorrow.
