For Sri Lanka, they needed early wickets to make a match out of this but they were pounded in the Powerplay. It got worse for them when Isuru Udana got injured without bowling a ball. They did fare decently in the middle overs when Hasaranga managed to take two wickets, however, they did not have enough runs on the board to play with.



Easy-peasy! India have made a mockery of the run chase. That was never in doubt though after their bowlers restricted the Lankans to a modest total. Their openers then got them off to a perfect start as they added 71 runs. The hosts did lose their openers in quick succession but Kohli and Iyer did well to form another partnership and took India to the brink of victory. Iyer perished but Kohli and Pant ensured there were no more wickets to fall and helped India take a 1-0 lead.
