In this 7th match, India won the toss and elected to field first. It is been their successful decision so far, after winning the toss. They’re confident in chasing the totals! Sri Lanka batted first and kept losing wickets continuously. Indian bowlers did well once again. But the good thing was that the whole batting lineup of Sri Lanka at least performed and gave a hope to the team to defend the total and take the victory. Sri Lanka gave the target of 139 to India, which is not easy to achieve on this tough pitch. Now let’s see what happened in the 2nd innings.
In the 2nd innings, India started to bat and they lost 2 early wickets of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. But it was Virat Kohli who once again came on to the crease and played his fabulous knock. Kohli and Suresh Raina made a good partnership together to pull off the pressure from the team and make it easier to win the game. Yuvraj Singh also played brilliant knock for the team. So, the Sri Lankan bowlers were under pressure and the reason was that there was a dew-factor, which unfortunately, took the game away from them. India won the match by 5 wickets with 4 balls remaining. Good 3rd consecutive win for India, and they’ve qualified for the Final of T20 Asia Cup 2016. WOW!
