Kohli, Pandey swat Sri Lanka aside in one-off T20I

India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test,Highlights Sri Lanka's rearguard action halts India's charge

India wrapped-up a memorable tour of Sri Lanka with a seven-wicket victory over the hosts in the one-off T20 global at the Premadasa Stadium, in Colombo, on Wednesday.

What transpired next was a 5-wicket, 17-run tumble, with KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav and Virat Kohli (in that order) mustering nine runs.

Asked to bat first, Sri Lanka made 170-7 in its 20 overs.

9-0 - India's record on tour in Sri Lanka across formats.

India: Sony Ten 3, Sony Ten 3 HD, Sony Six, Sony Six HD.

Virat Kohli continued his golden touch with the bat and apart from the first couple of deliveries where he was beaten outside the off stump, Kohli looked in control of every bit of his innings until the time he got out.

For India, legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal was expensive but took the most wickets and wrecked Lanka in the middle overs to end up with figures of 3/43. India fielded a strong Test side, but even after resting some of their key players in the ODIs, Kohli's team showed brilliant strength.




The players also looked a little confused as this has never happened during an worldwide cricket match before.

Speaking after the match at the post-match press conference, Pothas heaped praise on Kohli and his boys and said: "You look at their team and they are very All Black-like".

Pandey remained unbeaten on 51 in the chase.

Sri Lanka could never really recover from the early blow and failed to build the partnerships which were needed to chase the imposing target. According to the statistics, the India Cricket team have not played more Twenty 20 global matches in this year, 2017.

India and Sri Lanka were also involved in an another toss-related confusion in the 2011 World Cup final. "Since the first three (Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli) and four-down (Dhoni) are fixed, the others need to understand the role they need to play and adapt themselves accordingly". Incidentally, Dhoni got a single off the penultimate delivery of the 50th over as he remained stranded on 49 not out - one short of what could have been his 100th worldwide half-century.

Sri Lanka and Indian sub-continent:Sony Ten.
