Kusal Perera powers Sri Lanka to victory over India in Colombo

Lack of experience left India rudderless for most part during the run-chase as their young bowling unit looked to contain Sri Lanka's batters on a ground with the ropes pulled in some distance.

By the time Shardul Thakur was midway through the 19th over, the match was already in Sri Lanka's lap, courtesy a quickfire cameo from Thisara Perera towards the end.

"It was in the first six overs that they took the game away from us". But Kusal Perera is known for his batting in the powerplay overs.

"It wasn't like 10 an over against the spinners in the middle overs. That's because the wicket was a little slow", Dhawan said. JioTV also won the award for the "Innovative Mobile TV App" in the recently concluded Aegis Graham Bell Award on February 23rd, 2018 in New Delhi.

"We had to attack in the first six overs. That's the damage they did to us", Dhawan said. "I am happy my consistency is going very good and I am enjoying it". "The general pattern is that my strike-rate has been quiet high", Dhawan said. When you lose two wickets at the start, one has to curb aggression.

WICKET! Much needed breakthrough for Rohit Sharma's men. Rishabh Pant (23) and Dinesh Karthik (13*) applied the finishing touches as India creamed 50 runs off their final five overs. Rohit is leading the side as Virat Kohli has been rested. We're lucky that we have got quality players who are waiting to do well. The tournament which starts on Tuesday, also features hosts Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Let's hope they will learn from their mistakes and will come out with a different gameplan on Thursday against Bangladesh as on that true Premadasa surface some serious skills-sets are required from the bowlers to tame the opposition batting unit. They have been consistently performing in A tours, Ranji Trophy, IPL cricket. However, refuting the claims of the emergency impacting the game, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has clarified that the match will go on as per schedule as the situation in Colombo is absolutely normal unlike candy, where the clashes have been reported. Yes, the execution wasn't up to the mark, but we can learn from our mistakes. Now, after Tharanga was down, he came back and this time restricted Shanaka and Thisera to just three runs off the 16th over.

"T20 is such a format where any team can win on that particular day".
