India clean sweep the colombo T20 by 7 wickets
After Kohli and co whitewashed the ODI successfully now again clinched the only T20 match held in Colombo. So now the BCCI will be very much happy as the crue will have both of the 3 trophies in their name.
After winning the toss captain Kohli wants to field 1st as he always loves to chase and also have a strong bowling lineup that can restrict the opponent to score a huge one.
So batting 1st Srilankan opener can’t give a perfect start as Tharanga was bowled by Bhubaneswar Kumar in his 2nd over and Dickwella again being getting bowled by Bumrah. At the moment where Srilanka is not looking to be in good position. The duo Munaweera 53(29) and Priyanjan40*(40) give the team a well-run rate scoring having 90 in 10 overs. In 11.2 over Munaweera is tricked by Kedar Jadhav on a slower delivery googly which he tries to get over the long-on missed it and hits to the stumps. Then in the last 10 overs, Srilankan team only managed to score 80 runs. Setting up a target of 171 for India.
In response, India starts with a bang by 12 runs coming from the 1st over. But then it’s time for the Srilankan fan to enjoy as Malinga in his 2nd over spell picked up the wicket of HITMAN. Lokesh Rahul 24(18) looking to be in good form gets caught in the extra cover which he not timed properly.
Now two heroes of the last ODI match Manish Pandey and Virat Kohli completely changed the scenario of the match. Both fully charged the Colombo ground with mammoth sixes and fours. The duo together stands for a long having partnership of 119. Just 10 runs remaining to win the match Kohli got out in 82(54). Then with a dashing 4, Manish Panday51*(36) completed his half-century and wins the match for India.
At the post-presentation Kohli taking all the trophies that amazed himself also and threw back a funny look towards teammates with an eyebrow up.
The Srilanka tour ended up with a huge success now India will eagerly looking forward to repeating that same against Australia which gonna be starting in this month.
