Posted On

An overall strong performance from the Indian team helped them beat Sri Lanka by 5 wickets in the 3rd and final T20I to sweep the series 3-0.


Indian bowlers did brilliantly to restrict Sri Lanka to 135/7 in 20 overs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. After India won the toss and opted to field, Jaydev Unadkat and debutant Washington Sundar bowled beautifully to put the visitors on the backfoot.

Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya also stemmed the run flow and picked up wickets. In reply, the hosts required 19.2 overs to win the match with Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer being the top-scorers. MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik eventually guided the team over the line.



Also, it was India’s first T20I series win under the stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma in absence of Virat Kohli.

Here is how fans on Twitter reacted to India’s win:
