Bangladesh defeat Sri Lanka

Mushfiq's 'Nagin dance' goes viral

A clinical India defeated Sri Lanka comprehensively by six wickets to continue their their winning run in the Nidahas Twenty20 Tri-series, here on Tuesday.

Rahul went too deep in his crease while facing spinner Jeevan Mendis in the tenth over and dislodged the bails with his right foot.

Paceman Thakur led India's disciplined effort with the ball to restrict Sri Lanka to a below-par 152 for nine in a rain-hit match which was reduced to a 19-overs-a-side contest.

An unbeaten 68-run stand between Manish Pandey (42) and Dinesh Karthik (39) helped India to defeat Sri Lanka by six wickets. Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh will face each other twice in the group phase before the top two meet in the final on March 18.

Chandimal, Sri Lanka's regular captain, has been suspended for two games after his team were found guilty of slow over rate in the clash against Bangladesh.

Rohit Sharma was the first to depart while chasing the target set up by Sri Lanka, followed Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina.




The fourth match will be played between India and Sri Lanka on March 12, 2018. What seemed to have been a blessing in disguise with Thisara Perera tonking his first two deliveries for sixes, proved otherwise soon after. Dhawan has scored 288 runs in his last 5 innings for the Men in Blue.

But the left-hander looked in a hurry and in the process lost his wicket, chipping one straight to Thisara Perera at mid-off Nuwan Pradeep (1/30) as India slumped to 63 for three after seven overs.

In reply, India lost skipper Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant early.

If Chandimal is captain and Sri Lanka commit another over-rate offence in the next 12 months, Chandimal will receive two to eight suspension points since it will be his second offence.

KL Rahul, who had come into the match after sitting out for the last two games, got off to a steady start, but brought about his own dismissal by stepping his back foot on to the stumps to get hit-wicket.

The Nidahas Trophy India v/s Sri Lanka 4th T20I will be broadcast live on DSport (English commentary), Rishtey Cineplex and Rishtey Cineplex HD (Hindi commentary).
