The Indian National Cricket Team led by Virat Kohli registered yet another easy-peasy victory on Friday to seal the series against Sri Lanka. The opening batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and the collective bowling effort helped India to seal the game in the third and final T20 of the series.

Chasing 201 on the board, Sri Lanka got the worst possible start with openers, Fernando and Kusal Perera walking back for a cheap score. However, Angelo Mathews and Dhananjaya de Silva showed some resistance in the middle to avoid further hiccups.

Just when things looked to settle in the middle for Sri Lanka, the experienced Angelo Mathews played a poor show to help India trigger a collapse. Following the wicket of Angelo Mathews, none of the batsmen stood in the middle for Silva. Dhananjaya was the only batsman, who looked solid in the middle with his brilliant fifty.

Earlier, the Indian openers went berserk in the middle to find the boundary fence more often than not. They both added 97 runs for the first wicket before Shikhar Dhawan being dismissed for 54 on the board. He was quickly followed by Sanju Samson and KL Rahul, which turned things for Sri Lanka. Shreyas Iyer also followed the duo to help further Sri Lanka to make a comeback into the game.

However, the skipper Virat Kohli came to the party for India, who smashed Sri Lanka to all corners of the park. His fantastic knock in the death overs helped India to finish the game on top with a massive tally on the board.

Just when things looked out of the hand got Sri Lanka, the run out of Virat Kohli helped Sri Lanka to stage a comeback into the game. The decent spell in the final overs helped India to restrict for a low score than what was expected earlier. The regular wickets in the middle overs helped Sri Lanka to stay on top of the game before Shardul Thakur showing his skills. In the end, all they managed was 201 on the board.
