Indian Cricket Team registered a narrow victory against Sri Lanka in the 1st T20I match by 2 runs. The island nation would feel that they missed a golden opportunity to win the match as chasing 163 runs is not a big score in modern cricket given the fact that they have a long batting lineup.

The management would be quite happy after seeing Deepak Hooda perform as the batter played an invaluable knock of 41 runs in 23 balls where he struck 4 massive sixes and 1 four. It won’t be wrong to say that it was because of him that the team posted a challenging total of 162-5.

Sanju Samson Unavailable for 2nd T20I

Sanju Samson had attempted a diving catch in the 1st over of Sri Lanka’s batting where he couldn’t hold onto the catch.  The wicket-keeper batter has a niggle on his knee and is in Mumbai for further scans.  The batter has been in & out of the side where he hasn’t got a long rope and at the same time he isn’t a part of Sri Lanka ODI Series.

Conundrum for Management

Sanju Samson would be utterly disappointed with himself as while batting he got out cheaply. Many experts believe that his shot selection is not upto the mark. Skipper Hardik Pandya would be worried as Samson is someone who can clear the fence quite easily.

Rahul Tripathi could be well in the line for his T20I debut as it looks unlikely that India will include Washington Sundar and play with  3 spinners.  The right handed batter has been amassing runs in the domestic as well as in the IPL circuit for quite some time now. He could be the lightning spark for the team in the middle order.
